Thx Barbara. No it has not and that is a critical piece I was missing.
If you get a chance can you review the procedure I posted where I extract the clear text value of the packed number out of a hex representation via sql?
Any flaws or potential pitfalls with that method?


What about negative numbers? Your procedure would return say '12345D' for -12345.

Assuming you're going to use that string as a zoned value, I'm guessing you should return '1234N' for input of x'12345D'.
