Hi all,

Say we have a variable A which is X(3) and variable B which is 9(3).

If we have values like "1 " , "10 " etc in A with trailing spaces and we want them as 001 and 010 respectively in B which is right justification of the data with preceeding zeroes.

How can that be accomplished with COBOL? Can anyone give the code snippet for that?

Thanks & regards,
Mouli

Hi Mouli

Check the NUMVAL function.
Code:

COMPUTE WS-NUM-DIGITS = FUNCTION NUMVAL(WS-ALPHA)
