Hi
I need to modify a packed decimal value to 20 for all the records.

Cobol decleration:
Code:

QST-AMT         PIC S9(07)V99 COMP-3


I did write a sort card with outrec
Code:

SORT FIELDS=(1,9,CH,A)
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,128,129:X'02000C',132,69)


Is the hex representation value of 20 correct?

Hi,

Code:
QST-AMT         PIC S9(07)V99 COMP-3


Doesn't this occupy 5 bytes ?

Yes it does.

PIC S9(07)V99 COMP-3 =
Code:
[99]  [99]  [99]  [99]  [9S]
 12    34    56    7,1   2C

The comma is imaginary and S is for the sign (C or D).
