this is regarding copy file.
I have a physical file P1 and physical file P2. Now in P1 i have a zoned decimal field and in P2 i have a packed decimal field. let us assume i have the negative data in P1.
after performig the CPYF to copy the P1 to P2, i am getting some junk characters ( '}', 'M', 'S' and etc) in file P2.
These junk characters are appearing when used the DSPPFM option on P2. is this is the format to use indicating the negative sign?
