did You ever care to read about number format on the IBM mainframes
binary, packed, zoned,
and how the sign is represented for signed zoned numbers ?
Code:
72L
FFD
723

is just the poorly formatted representation of a NEGATIVE 723
Your sqlcode is -723

and if You have already decoded the sqlcode ( which was not clear from the question )
just follow the suggestions from the manual
