That is not PACKED-DECIMAL/COMP-3, that is a BCD field (like packed, but with no sign nybble).

Code:
01  deal-with-bcd.
    05  your-field-in PIC X(3).
    05  FILLER COMP-3 PIC V9 VALUE ZERO.
01  FILLER REDEFINES  deal-with-bcd.
    05  your-fieldout COMP-3 PIC 9(6)V9.


Define your source field as PIC XXX/X(3), do the two obvious MOVEs, ending with the value you want.
