Look at the EDIT MASK capability of Easytrieve -- the specific mask you will use will depend upon whether or not you want the leading zeros and the negative sign in a fixed position or not.
My desire is read the number "-110803282" from this packed "hex on" register.
Actually, no this is not your desire -- you want a HUMAN READABLE value to be output, which is EXTREMELY different from what you originally asked for. As indicated, you were reading the number value correctly -- you merely were not correctly interpreting the results Easytrieve gave you.
