Assume that you use the Provider for Host Files in Microsoft Host Integration Server 2013 to query a particular field under the following conditions:
In the Cobol book, the field is defined as PIC S9(4) COMP-4.
The field contains a negative value.
The field is mapped to a DataType of System.Decimal.
In this situation, the query returns an incorrect value in the form of a very large negative number.
Note When the value is non-negative, the query works as expected.
