Re:Restructure of partial packed (COMP-3) field

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jul 9, 2008
I am planning to change a comp-3 field defined as 9v99 (2 bytes) to
99v999 (3 bytes). I would like to add 1 byte before the field and then
after the restructure multiply the original contents of the field by 10
to align the data for the additional decimal place.

For the original field defintion I am thinking it should look something
like:

IDMSRSTT FIELD=(PL2'0',nn,nn,NEW) where nn is the length of the field
and offset into the record.

The content of the new byte needs to be initialized to zero and defined
as Hex 00. I was thinking this individual byte cannot be defined as
COMP-3.

How should this new byte be specified in the IDMSRSTT FIELD statement?

TIA

Re: Change management software for IDMS
"Kevin - we have just finished building our own Change Control System. It
is a TSO based application that uses the active IDD application
dictionary as the Change Management Database. It only handles IDMS
components - although Cobol programs can be ""registered"" for a Change
Control Id (a CCID)so that they are included in the system generated
""migration list"". We do NOT manage the source as such. We DO implement
IDD security on the IDD entities however - so that there is only ever
one authorised user for dialogs, maps, and process code. I can send more
details if you're interested. It has been in ""production"" use since
December 1st, 2007.
