I am using Startool FDM 7.7.1. I have a COBOL file and want to find all records, where the field "MYAMOUNT" is less than zero. The field "MYAMOUNT" is a decimal string, 29 digits long (in Cobol its picture definition is S9(20)V9(9).

In the record selection panel of FDM I tried: MYAMOUNT LT n'00000000000000000000000000000' (29 zeroes according to the picture definition). But FDM returned an error 'Decimal number too long'. I found out, that it is possible to fill in 16 zeroes, but in this case the query does not deliver any result.

Thanks in advance for any hint.
