I am getting some problem in dealing with Hex values in a file. I have a file with two data elements Date and Volume stored as
Here first four bytes is date x'2005115C' and last four is volume x'00000134'. When I read them into a program working storage, what picture clause shall I give. For date it is ok. I specify 9(7) comp-3 and it reads fine, but for volume when I specify
9(7) comp-3 it reads only x'0000013'
9(8) comp-3 it givers s0c7
9(9) comp-3 it gives x'0000013400' - takes x'00' from next field.
