Hi
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
20150003
051C0014

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.

Please suggest.
Regards
Amit

You've already asked and got answers elsewhere. If you can't take note of those, what would be the point of asking again here?
