I have defined a field with S9(18) Comp field in which data is stored as X'01B69B4BA630F34E' which in decimal has value 123,456,789,012,345,678 but when I am doing a edited display using edit pattern BZZZZ,ZZZ,ZZZ,ZZZ,ZZZ,ZZZ its truncating 2 rightmost bytes and displaying 1,234,567,890,123,456.

Am I doing something wrong here? Please help me in this.

did You try with ARITH(EXTENDED) ?
when working with borderline values it is better to be safe than sorry

enrico, it is even over the border.

abhay pratap singh,

You have specified 19 digit positions in your edited field. To do that you should compile with ARITH(EXTEND). However, if that was a mistake, chop the leading Z entirely or make it into a second B.
