Hi Sangar

the IS numeric clause can be used with alphanumeric field

i suppose

the ist results in "gan". as 123 is passed & the last byte is padded with space

the 2nd result in "sangar"



thanks
siva

An A/N field will test positive for NUMERIC if it only contains the digits
0-9, that is, X'F0' thru X'F9'.

Any other values will result in a failed NUMERIC test.
