Answer / ajmina gilani
New size should be A5, as P8 will take 5 byte to store. But
when I have tested with redefining P8 by A5, it is not
displaying proper value for redefind veriable.

Answer / getme
5 bytes, see below
NAT0039 Sum of field lengths in REDEFINE > length of base field (=5 bytes).

Answer / surya
It should be redefined as A8.
Reason: even though the P8 occupies 5 bytes of memory
it is internal to the memory allocation. But to accomaodate
8 characters you need todeclare a alphanumeric character of

Answer / praby
should be defined as A8 and it wil take 8 bytes

Answer / dd
I think directly this conversion is not possible as packed
decimal is used for numeric value fields only.
Since it is p(8) so the numeric value field size should be
15 or 16 as [8 can be either (n+1)/2 i.e. (15+1)/2 or ( n/2)
So we can say (n15 or 16) will be (P8).
Alternatively (A16 or 15)
