You need to retrieve a hex value. 20. will not do that. It is for decimal input only. It would choke on a, b, c, d, and f and would treat e as the start of the exponent field.

Check out the HEXw. informat.

Well, right after I found out how to convert the 8 digit decimal number to a hex value I re-read the instruction and realized that I misunderstood something the first time. Now I have the problem, that I first have to retrieve the hexadecimal value for the whole bigint unsigned decimal value from MySQL.

When I use a numeric informat like input(userid, 20.), will the precision be enough to retrieve the correct hex value?
