Hi,

I'd like to know how to convert 9-digit packed decimal data into 16-digit
character data in E-COBOL.

I'd appreciate your reply in this regard.

Thanks

I guess you know that a 9 DIGIT comp-3 (packed) variable is 5 BYTES long and a 16 DIGIT char variable is 16 BYTES long.

Given that:
Code:

pd-9-digit        pic S9(009) comp-3.
ch-16-digit       pic S9(016).


move pd-9-digit to ch-16-digit


There may be variations on this depending on what you're trying to accomplish.
