Yeah, I was referring to the "A character string as long as 5000 characters" rather than your "ditch CL" stance, but I get you other point :)

Not really...guess I just never realized CL was limited like that...

Personally, I'd would have stuck with integer! :) Bigger number, less
space, and faster...what more could you want?

If the OP can change the RPG, that's a way I would consider.

Having a bad day Charles? :)

The maximum lengths for each of the five types are:

Decimal -- 15 digits, 9 decimal positions

Character -- 32767 bytes
Note: The initial value (specified for the VALUE
parameter)
of a CL variable can be no greater than 5000 characters.

Logical -- 1 byte

Integer -- 4 bytes

Unsigned integer -- 4 bytes

Ok...my bad...

v The CL variable value must be one of the following: – A character
string as long as 5000 characters. – A packed decimal value totaling
up to 15 digits with as many as 9 decimal positions.

Either ditch CL or define it as char and set the hex value to the
packed value...
