One person's "junk" is another person's hexadecimal value which tells you what the field "contains".

What exactly do you mean by "view" it? Is it really "one record" with a data length of four bytes?

Hello,

Open the file in VIEW and loook sat the data in Hex (HEX ON).

It is NOT intended that binary data be readable directly by people. Code has no trouble with binary data.

Do you need to check the "on/off" status of bits within each byte?

This should be relatively easy using your PC calculator....

How do you "see the values"? Using File-Aid, IBM file-Manager or using ISPF 3.4/B?
