Hi all,

An online program which has a field
ABC pic s99

Sometimes the value recieved by the field is 0*. Due to this the program abends with S0C7. How can i avoid the situation??

The fix im thinking is to validate the field and throwing an error message.
If this is correct how can i validate the field??

thanks in advance...

regards,
Kratos
