    Unanswered: convert Comp3 Data to .cvs or similar formats

    Hi,
    I ve got the following problem. I should watch out for a tool that is able to convert compressed files (comp3) form MVS to .csv or a similar format with correct content.
    It should be a Windows tool to use it after download via ftp.
    Has anybody an idea?
    I m not an expert in this case so please explain newbie friendly
    Thanks
    Regards Alexander Bramm

    If what you need is load your files into a db2 database then
    "LOAD ... MODIFIED BY PACKEDDECIMAL ... " might work for you. Otherwise, search google for "convert packed decimal to ascii" and go from there.

    Hope this helps.

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    Thanks for your answer. It should be a Windows program, because Host time is expensive, but your search text for google was great. I found some programs which can do this job for me.
    Thank you

    BTW, comp-3 means computational-3, not compressed.

    Thanks for the advise. I thought it should be compressed
