Working with Packed-Decimals

Hi all,

I am working on a project where I will receive a Packed decimal field from mainframe. I need to unpack the packed decimal and move the value to another variable how to do this?.

On the receiving end I dont know whether I need to receive it as bytes or stream or string?

I appriciate your help in this.

Take a look at

That may help sort out the BigDecimal vs. packed decimal issue.
