Hello,

You need to post some of the input data (in hex). You don't need to post entire records unless they are small, only the problem field(s).

If the records are variable length, did you add 4 for the rdw?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

How about showing us the control statements that you are using and, as Dick requested, some of the data - displayed in hex. Use the code tags to keep your code and data aligned. Code tags are [ code] and [/ code] (without the embedded spaces that I put in there.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards

CURRENT-BAL PIC S9(13)V99 COMP-3

That declaration is indeed for an 8-byte PD field. So ON(302,08,PD,C4) would be correct. If it's NOT, then either the field does NOT start in position 302 or it does NOT actually match that declaration.

To find out, you can use ON(302,08,HEX) to see what the field really looks like in hex.
