Attached is a file that contains 1 row of data with 40 bytes.
I am writing a C# application that reads this file.
The first 4 bytes of the 1 record in this file represent a field "record length" as follows:

...&          This 1st line is the decimal representation of the data
0005       This 2nd and 3rd line of the data represents the hexadecimal equivalent      
0000      

The value in positions 1 to 4 represents in EBCIDIC the value of '50' and this also represents a value of '80' in its decimal representation equivalent.

Do you know how to read this value into a variable field and interpret the value as '80' in decimal ?
