high-values low-values (microfocus COBOL in Oracle/Linux environment)

Successfully remediated 80+ programs from mainframe env to run in microfocus cobol against Oracle DB in Linux env.

I have one pgm that is moving high and low values to output header trailer records per requirement. Leading 9 bytes of each record.

My problem is that when it ran on the mainframe I got  hex x'00' in the 9 bytes for low-values and x'FF' in 9 bytes for high-values, as expected. 

When running the .gnt in the Oracle/Linux env. I get low-values as x'00' occupying 18 bytes and high-values as x'07' occupying 9 bytes.

Need to mimic what the mainframe run did...any suggestions??

Thanks, Mike

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

How about a working storage field named MY-HIGH-VALUE with a length of 9 and fill it with x’FF’ during program house keeping. ALL (and I mena ALL) other programs will also have to do this.

I don’t know MicroFocus COBOL, but I just have to wonder why it thinks x’07′ is HIGH VALUES. Maybe some research is in order.
