you could read the documentation and it will tell you.
However SAVE is ALPHA SAVB is Binary.
Binary means you cannot read the numbers.
Save converts numeric fields to character strings, so the output is purely "printable".
Savb holds them in internal formt (which is Binary in the case of I-format; hence the B).
Two jg's for the price of one
The other thing to keep in mind when holding or saving binary data is that the length of alpha fields is rounded up to the next 4 byte boundry. For example, in field with a length of A1 will show A1 as the USAGE format but will be A4 in the ACTUAL format.
In FOCUS since 1985. Prod WF 8.0.08 (z90/Suse Linux) DB (Oracle 11g), Self Serv, Report Caster, WebServer Intel/Linux.
And SAVE can result in overflow (asterisks in place of a numeric value)
