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.=20

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

IDMSRSTT FIELD=3D(PL2'0',nn,nn,NEW) where nn is the length of the field
and offset into the record. =20

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.=20

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

TIA
