Reply with quote

I'm trying to Unload DB2 data from a table into a sequential file. In the query i'm joining two tables with LEFT OUTER JOIN, when i select the rows from second table one extra space is comming(eg: if the field is 10 characters in a table, then 11 characters are comming in a file with one extra trailing space).
Please suggest how to modify the query to get currect length of data in a file.
