I have a record where two fields are defined as full words, and I am trying to convert the to character fields.

This is what the fields look like when I display them with Hex On.

000B 007C
002C 00D8

This is the code that I have tried along with several others.

RLEN = SUBSTR(TMCDATA,093,004)
XLEN = X2C(B2X(RLEN))

I get the following error and I am not sure what I am doing wrong,
any help in the would be greatful.

43 *-* XLEN = X2C(B2X(RLEN)),
43 +++ XLEN = X2C(B2X(RLEN)),
IRX0040I Error running TESTIT, line 43: Incorrect call to routine,

from the first field I would expect to see 700 and from the second field I expect to see 32200 as the values. the first field is the record length and the second filed is the blksize, I am pulling this from the CA1 TMC dataset for a file.

I believe you want the C2D function. The other functions work strings that are interpreted as binary or hexadecimal numbers; C2D works with characters (i.e., actual binary values).
