 Posted: Thu Jul 11, 2013 3:06 pm    Post subject: You really, really, REALLY need to learn how to post a question: 1. Does all your data have a decimal point? 2. Is the decimal point always the second character of the X(18) variable? 3. If the answer to (1) and (2) is yes, you could simply use REDEFINES to use a numeric edited PIC for the data. If the answer to either is no, you could use intrinsic FUNCTION NUMVAL which is described in the COBOL Language Reference manual (link at the top o f this page). 4. There is no such thing as "S0C" (sic) error. You could have gotten an S0C1 (operation) or S0C4 (storage protection) or S0C7 (data) exception (among others), but not ever a "S0C" without the last digit.
