When creating a Variable Block file using Easytrieve, positions on the output file contain low-values. The Variable Block input file has spaces in those positions. Does anyone know why the spaces would be replaced by low values on the output file?

Code:
//FILE658  DD DSN=PMPCLN.CLSDAILY.BK080917,DISP=SHR,BUFNO=100
//TEMPTRAN  DD DSN=TSONGJO.CSSQMSTR,DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),     
//          SPACE=(CYL,(100,25),RLSE),UNIT=SYSDA,BUFNO=100,   
//          DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=3769,BLKSIZE=0)               

//SYSIN     DD *                                             

FILE FILE658                                                 
  T2-KEY          1     16   A                               

FILE TEMPTRAN                                                 

JOB INPUT TEMP658                                             

PUT TEMPTRAN FROM TEMP658

I assume the PUT should reference FILE658 rather than TEMP658, correct?
