DB2DatabaseBig Data Analytics

The formula for converting DECIMAL DB2 data type to COBOL equivalent is−DECIMAL(p,q) = PIC S9(p-q)V(q). Where V indicates implied decimal.

The DECIMAL(7,3) can take a sample value as 7861.237 and this can be converted to COBOL equivalent as PIC S9(7-3)V(3) = PIC S9(4)V(3).
