    How to read data from Cobol COMP-3?

      Hi,

       

      We're having problems reading data from AS/400, the data comes in Com-3 (Computational-3, Packed Decimal or Packed) format applied, if somebody have some code to translate to ASCII, we really appreciate, or if somebody know if some Qlikview function to translate it to ASCII.

       

      Here a sample of the data source we are getting:  é?

       

      Some documentation describe é? as as a date, we already translate to BCD (Binary code decimal) got a decimal value of 20191493, so we don't know what it means, definitely is not the date we expected to get...
