Hi All,

I need to force zeroes to a zoned decimal in a sort. My field is declared in cobol as s9(9). i did like the one below

OUTREC FIELDS=(1:C'000000000')

Is there any other way of doing it?

Thanks in Advance,
Chinnielr.

There are several other ways to do it. Here are a couple:

Code:

   OUTREC BUILD=(9C'0')


Code:

   OUTREC BUILD=(+0,TO=ZD,LENGTH=9)


What is your criteria for "any other way"? What are you trying to achieve?
