Sure sounds like a bug to me. At least for 9v9 to 9.9   
The rules for 99 to xx are a little more stringent.

Just to make sure, can you post the sending and receiving group items - and
tell us exactly what does end up in the receiving items.

I tried a short cut to printing out a
indexed-sequential record. I gave the LINE
SEQUENTIAL receiving record fields the same
fields  except I changed some pic clauses
from 9(6)v99. to 9(6).99. or from 99 to XX. Then
I used MOVE CORRESPONDING from one record to

that didn't work. In the receiving  record
I got strings of @ characters. But if I just
renamed the receiving fields by adding "-p" and
then moved FOO to FOO-P and BAR to BAR-P in
the receiving record everything worked fine.
