I am trying to convert this field to and insert as is in a database field. The format of the database field is S9(08)V9(04) COMP-3.

Use Nic’s suggestions going forward that will help.

This is a quick DB2 solution since you said you need to insert into DB( which I assumed it’s DB2). If that’s correct then this topic needs to move to DB2 section.
Code:
01 WS-B  pic s9(08)v9(04) comp-3.
EXEC SQL
   SET DEC(:WA:A,12,4) = :WS-B
END-EXEC
IF SQLCODE = 0
    Continue
Else
    Error
END-IF
