I am facing a problem with cobol comp-3 packed field data. I have not worked with this type of data before. How can I read cobol comp-3 packed field data into SAS ? Can anybody help me with the SAS read in script for such data ? OR how can we conver it into SAS dataset ? Is there a functionality in SAS enterprise guide (EG) that can be used to convert this type of data into SAS ? I would highly appreciate your assistance in this regard.

Have a look at the doc Working with Packed Decimal and Zoned Decimal Data, this will give you detailed information on how to read this type of data. Also have a look at the S370FPD. and PD. informats.
