Updating a packed field

Updating a packed field

Updating a packed field

I have a packed field that is 4.0 long but when you look at it in hex the first and last positions are not valid.  I have a field that looks like:
the 6107 is valid, the 2 should be 0 and the C should be F.

Is there a way to write an RPG program to fix this problem?  I have not written an RPG program in years, so sample code would be greatly appreciated!!

RE: Updating a packed field

Please disregard my previous post.  We found that all we had to do was an SQL:

update supportq/csb6rep set b6klnb = b6klnb    
where b6klnb > 9999
