UNPACK


Basic form

UNPACK f TO g.

Effect

Unpacks the packed field f and places it in the field g with leading zeros. If g is too short, it is truncated on the left.

Example

DATA: P_FIELD(2) TYPE P VALUE 103, C_FIELD(4) TYPE C. UNPACK P_FIELD TO C_FIELD.

P_FIELD: P'103C' --> C_FIELD: C'0103'

Notes

If f is not type P , it is converted to type P (see MOVE ).
g should always be type C . Otherwise, unwanted side effects may occur.
The sign in the packed number is ignored.
