Hi All,

I have a very basic question.
When we do a HEX ON to view packed decimal in a file what is difference between

Code:
0276
069D


and

Code:
0276
069C


Thanks,
Nivi

How is this to do with SMS & VSAM?

The last nibble indicates the sign. C represents a plus sign. D represents a negative sign.
