Hi,

I need to sum the field which has equivalent cobol declaration as Pic 9 (18).99 through Sort. I tried converting the field directly to PD using below code, but the sum field operation failed with S0C7 as the decimal conversion is not happening properly. Can anyone suggest me a method to convert the decimal data to packed decimal through sort ?

Conversion I used:
Outrec fields=(1,90,91,21, ZD,TO=PD,Length=11)

Sample value:
000000000000002645.56
000000000000003600.05

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Praseetha

I wonder when I see definitions like that (which require the use of compiler option ARITH(EXTEND). If you have 18 significant digits, what use are two decimal places? If two decimal places are significant, then you'll have a considerable number of leading zeros.

Anyway...

Please copy/paste from your emulator, don't re-type. We don't want to chase typos. Please use the Code tags.

Have a look at the Fields Box sticky at the top of the forum.

A "." is not valid in a ZD, so you are using an incorrect field-definition. If you try with UFF instead, see if you get what you want.
