I have hex value as X'0F1D'. I want to move to X(4) variable as 0F1D

So, that If I display alphanumeric field, I should able to see as 0F1D

-----------

If Hex as value X'FF' it should come as FF
For X'1dFF0D1C' as 1dFF0D1C

The target alphanumeric field will have twice the size of hex value field.

There are lots of ways. Here's [http://www.ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?p=115071#115071]one[/url].

A simple way is to have a table of 256 two-byte values, and the use each byte of your input as a subscript

Code:
01  subscript-name BINARY PIC 9(4) VALUE ZERO.
01  FILLER REDEFINES subscript-name.
    05  FILLER PIC X.
    05  input-byte-here PIC X.


MOVE each input byte successively to input-byte-here and use subscript-name to put each character pair into your output.
