I have a numeric field 9(18) in CICS. I am performing a check on this field to make sure that only numeric value is entered. Now, when I enter only 12 in the field then the message which I have coded gets populated "FIELD SHOULD BE NUMERIC". But when I enter 12 prefixed by all zeroes (to fill all the 18 places) then it accepts the value. Is there any way around in CICS thru which I can avoid this?

Thanks in advance

where do You have issues... in the logic or the coding ??

hint...
using reference modification scan the field until You find a non blank char
at that point check for numerics, when a new blank is found check that the rest is all blanks

in this way You will check for any alignment
data to the left ( You will skip the trailing blanks)
data to the right ( You will skip the leading blanks)
in anycase You will discard both the leading and trailing blanks

I think you can use JUSTIFY=(RIGHT,ZERO) for this field.
