I would like to know how to remove leading zeroes and at the same time
left align a variable containing a numeric value using EDIT mask-
For eg- if the count is of 10 digits as shown below
TRAILER1=('B',COUNT=(EDIT=(TTTTTTTTTT))),REMOVECC ,
i can remove leading zeroes by changing it to-
TRAILER1=('B',COUNT=(EDIT=(IIIIIIIITS,M0))),REMOVECC ,

That would be 0000000456 to .......456.
But now i want to left align the same?

Well,using JCL it is not possible to achieve this. I finally came to the conclusion that it can be done by calling a REXX in the form of parms, where in STRIP can be used to remove leading spaces after the removal of leading zeroes(as mentioned in the query using edit mask).


Cheerz,
