We are trying to have a new field EWH-FILLER2A (2 bytes) with the value from one filed DW-REVERSAL-IND (1 byte) and another byte as a <SPACE>

Could you please verify the following syntax for this?

000252 019500 MOVE DW-REVERSAL-IND TO EWH-FILLRE2A(1:1)
000253 019500 MOVE SPACES TO EWH-FILLER2A(2:1)

Hello,

When you move the 1-byte DW-REVERSAL-IND to EWH-FILLRE2A, the 1 byte will be moved into the left-most position of EWH-FILLRE2A and the other byte will be space filled. When you move a smaller alphanumeric field to a larger one, the length of the smaller field is moved and the remainder is filled with spaces.

The move statements you have should work also.
