Is it possible to move COMP value to COMP 3?

Postby ramesh4mainframes » Thu Aug 12, 2010 9:56 am

HI,

My doubt is, Is it possible to move one COMP variable to another COMP like COMP 2 or COMP 3. Both will store in different formats. So is it possible or not?
Thanks,
RamS

Hello,

Why would it not be possible?

Suggest you spend some time in the COBOL manual and learn about moving elementary fields.
Hope this helps,

A simple series of tests would be most instructive. Experiment.
