Is it possible to move a COMP-3 variable to an Alphanumeric variable directly?
01 A1 PIC S9(3) COMP-3 VALUE 1234.
01 B1 PIC X(4).
....
...
MOVE A1 TO B1.
DISPLAY B1.

.....

What will be displayed and what would be the content of B1?

I believe it will give SOC7 error.

Hi Jaydeeppal,

You cannot move a COMP-3 variable to alphanumeric directly. It will not give a SOC7 error but will you give you a return code 12 stating that comp-3 and alphanumeric variables did not follow the move compatibility rule.

The solution

01 A1 PIC S9(4) COMP-3 VALUE 1234.
01 A1-NUM PIC S9(4) VALUE ZEROES.
01 B1 PIC X(4).

MOVE A1 TO A1-NUM.
MOVE A1-NUM TO B1.
DISPLAY B1.


This will work Smile

Happy coboling !!!

Hi NiceGuy,

This post is all about the Move an COMP-3 element to a CHAR element.
All are replied that, it results in S0C7 abend.

But the code that I gave above will work to convert the COMP-3 value into a CHAR element.

01 WS-COMP3-VAR PIC 9(06) COMP-3.
01 WS-NAME PIC X(09) VALUE 'RAMESH'.


MOVE WS-NAME TO WS-COMP3-VAR
DISPLAY 'comp3 VALUE IS' WS-COMP3-VAR


I got some junk values may converted data.

out put for the same is:

comp3 VALUE IS528000

Please let me know still u have any doubt so that i can share the code which i have for the same

Ramesh.Ambadi.
