I have a field XXX with PIC S9(07)V9(06) COMP-3 in position 100.

I want XXX field with value LT 6

I have used the below SORT

Code:

   OUTFIL FILES=2,INCLUDE=(100,7,PD,LT,+000006000000), 
     OUTREC=(9,9)


But If i use the below SORT also, the same result is produced.

Code:

   OUTFIL FILES=2,INCLUDE=(100,7,PD,LT,+0000006000000),
     OUTREC=(9,9)


Please suggest which one is correct.

Hello,

Adding (or removing) most significant zeros does not change the value. . .

Those are the same and will hopefully give the same result. As would +6000000.
