Need Clarification on line area command

Post by rangopal » Wed Oct 07, 2009 2:51 pm


I have used line area command "H" on a variable to view the data of that variable in hexa decimal format. I was able to view it.

And also i have used "HEX ON" option in XPED. Here the resulting hexa decimal value for the same field was different from the output of line area command "H".

Could anyone clarify me. Why there was a difference between these commands "H" and "HEX ON" though the purpose is view data in Hexa decimal format.
