Reply with quote

Hi,

I have a hexadecimal value 4E96B4A0 and needs to convert to decimal. Used
X2D("4E96B4A0"), but giving "Incorrect call to routine" error.

Then I have removed that hex value last digit 0 ( X2D("4E96B4A")) and ran it is working fine.

please help me to convert the hexadecimal 4E96B4A0 value in normal decimal number

tried still getting the same error

20 +++ say x2d(c2x("4E96B4A0"))
IRX0040I Error running REXXREAD, line 20: Incorrect call to routine

Here the actual decimal digits have 10 digit number, but X2D is able to convert 8 digit number...

Usually this happens when value returned is more than 9 decimal digits. So try NUMBERIC DIGITS 15 (or whatever you feel the maximum should be.) near the top of your REXX program.

or you may also look for using combination of substr() and x2d().
