Hi,

I am sending a .CSV file as an attachment in a Email.
i am using ICEGENER and //SYSUT2 DD SYSOUT=K,DEST=TCPSMTP
for this.

One of my field is PIC X(08), this mostly contains numeric values. But this is an important filed.

In the Flat file say my value is 0001, when it gets emaild and users open the .CSV file using excel. There the value is shown as 1. the preceding zeroes are not shown in the excel.

i tried by populating quatos in the Flat file like '0001' , but the excel also show '0001'.

can any one please help.

Code:
--<< boundary_identifier >>                                         
Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="XXX.CSV"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: ascii                                     


this is the content i am using for making it as an attachment.

And what does this have to do with JCL, let alone mainframes?

The problem is with some MacroShaft program. Ask them!

Hi,

while opening(importing) the .csv file in excel, you need to specify the particular column as text. Then you will get your pre fixing zeros.
