For VSAM files, for alphanumeric fields, I am using default values which is Low values. For the same field in DB2, I am using default values which are spaces. My program is not manipulating these variables at all. So they are having their default values.Now if I am comparing these two fields, I am getting mismatch which actually should not be a mismatch. Can somebody please help me to solve this problem such that while comparing it should not give me any mismatch for these default values.

Update your fields in DB2 or in VSAM and in one of this change its default.
If you cannot you must write some line of source...
Difference between low value and space is easy.
low value in hex is '00'
space in hex is '40'
