What does the data look like on the two machines?? -----Original Message----- From: Nel Dennis [mailto:DNel3@OLDMUTUAL.com] Sent: Monday, October 15, 2001 11:10 AM To: 'COBOL400-L@midrange.com' Subject: PIC S9(9) COMP field definition. [ Converted text/html to text/plain ] Hi All, I have the following problem. We have a Cobol program running on the Mainframe with the following COPYBOOK in the Working Storage Section; 07 R-CLIENT PIC S9(9) COMP. 07 D-FROM-MTH PIC S9(4) COMP. 07 D-FROM-DD PIC S9(2) COMP. We have written some code on the AS/400 which does a call via "ECS" to get data from the Mainframe via this COPYBOOK. I have captured the Copybook on the AS/400 exactly the same as the COPYBOOK on the Mainframe. BUT when I access the data it is different on the AS/400!! );- Should I be defining the fields differently on the AS/400? If so how? Any help would be greatly appreciated as our whole project is dependant on this piece of code working. (We would prefer not to change the copybook on the M/F as this program gets used in all sorts of other programs.
