COMP fields

Post by CareEv »

We have had no problem with EBCDIC conversions with COMP-3 fields, but our customer threw us a curve today and sent a copybook with fields that look like this:

10 WS-PROVIDER-ID PIC S9(9) USAGE COMP.

So COMP instead of COMP-3. TextPipe doesn't complain, but these fields are not converting properly. Are COMP fields understood by TextPipe?

Use BINARY instead of COMP.

Nevermind. It needs to look like this:

10 WS-PROVIDER-ID PIC S9(9) BINARY.
