Hi,

My requirement is converting the comp variable to a display variable and then update into a table.

Thanks in advance.

This is a simple COBOL MOVE statement, unless for some reason, you need to preserve the COMP value as-is.

For example -

If the COMP value in a fullword were X'00000040' (decimal 64), do you need to preserve this, so that the target field were C'00000040', as an 8-Byte Display value?

Enquiring minds want to know....
