Hi all,

I am trying to export data to a text file. I have a decimal field. I need to convert it to COMP-3(Packed Decimal). As i need to pass this file to mainframe.



Thanks,
Viral Patel

You did not tell us from where the data is coming.
The destination is a mainframe - aha.

For me it sounds like a COBOL-Program should be used to read the text file.
If that is true then the very easy way is: export to ascii file with decimal values as 00234.66 or whatever and then in a short fine COBOL-Program read that file and move the data "PIC 9(5)V99" to a "PIC 9(5)V99 COMP-3" field for example...
