I have a file that contains a 2-byte field which I defined as 'N'. In the file the field has a hex value of x'F5C2'. My program does a check to determine if the field is numeric (some of the records contain spaces). This record fails the numeric check and is not added to the total. Does anyone know how to handle this? icon_question.gif

Ekta,

Thanks for your suggestion. As I expected, it did not work. If the field was a packed field it should be x'052C', not x'F5C2'. I tried several statements, add, move... but all with the same result: Code 7 (Data Excp).

I took out the numeric check and Easytrieve added the value correctly. However, it fails the numeric check. Interesting.
