Then why have you posted this in the ABENDS & Debugging forum.

Which language are we talking here, any more info would be appreciated.

For Easytrieve you need to use a edit mask, read the manual.

Hello,

Suggest you create the value (using the edit mask) in a working variable. Redefine this working variable as a character field. Then move the character redefinition to the output file.

An example PRINTER EXIT is now here.

This will allow you to use a MASK to edit a field, and then put that field on an output file.
