Hi All,

I have numeric value in my input file as mentioned below

Code:

----+----1----+----2
AB12CED123456.789


In my easytrieve program I have a file layout defined as

Code:

KEY-CODE     1 07 A
RATE-VAL     8 10 A


I want to convert/move RATE-VALUE in to a packed variable defined as

Code:
RATE-VAL-PD 5 P 3


Can anyone suggest me how can I achieve this?

Thanks in advance for your kind help.

Thanks,
Sati

What does it say in the manual ?
What have you tried yourself so far, and what results did you get.

Thanks Expat for your quick reply.

I tried to redefine with a numeric varible like

CHARGE   10 N 3
but I got data exception error.

Thanks,

Sati,
you are not thinking.

a value of nnnnn.nnn is and numeric edited or simply an alpha field.

either read the manual and find an ezytrieve equivalent to a COBOL NUMVAL, if there is such a thing. or simply
Code:

KEY-CODE     1  07 A
RATE-VAL-HI  8  06 N 0
DEC-PD       15 01 A
RATE-VAL-LO  16 03 N 3

and

add rate-val-hi, rate-val-lo giving rate-val-pd
or move rate-val-hi to rate-val-pd
and add rate-val-lo to rate-val-pd

dbz is right.

Only thing I'd say is to drop off that last zero below.

Code:
RATE-VAL-HI  8  06 N 0


The 0 forces the field to be signed. Since it is unsigned, leave it so.

To add to the possibilities, you can do it with the data:

Code:
s-rate-val S 10 N 3
    s-rv-integer        s-rate-val 6 N
    s-rv-decimal-places s-rate-val +6 3 N 0

s-packed-decimal 5 p 3

...

s-rv-integer        = rate-val-hi
s-rv-decimal-places = rate-val-lo

s-packed-decimal-rate = s-rate-val


Here the zero is included for the decimal-places, since the 3 decimal places specified forces it to be signed, so might as well do it as early as possible.
