Hi
I am reading a file which has a field x'001c' at position 17. The declaration in the assembler copybook is
AXBCBKNO DS PL2 PROCESS CENTER NUMBER
I am trying to move this (through reference modification) to a field which is defined as 9(5) . How can I structure the move statements so that I can see '00001' in the output field. Do I need some intermediate moves.

Thanks a lot

You shouldn't need reference modification. If the source field is defined as S999 COMP-3 in COBOL and the destination field is 9(5), a simple elementary move should do it.

Yes, reference-modification would be an odd and unworkable way to do that. Define the field as COMP-3 or PACKED-DECIMAL PIC S999 and just MOVE. Give the data a good name (sending and receiving fields) and you never know, someone may be able to follow your code.

This is an example of having a little bit of Assembler knowledge and it would go a long way....
