Hello, need help pls..

INPUT:
LRECL 13 -> S9(11)V9(02).

OUTPUT needs to be S9(9)V9(2) COMP-3.

Please comment if OUTREC FIELDS=((1,13,SFF,MUL,+10),TO=PD,LENGTH=6) is correct?

Thanks!!

What happens when you try it? Why are you multiplying the input value? And you do realize that you may be losing significant digits by moving 11 digits before the decimal point to 9 digits before the decimal point?

Actually the PIC S9(11)V9(2) does correspond to format ZD,13 in SYNCSORT, not SFF.
SFF is likely PIC X(13).

From the original post it is unclear why to multiply by +10 ???
