Define a variable with a floating sign, and MOVE A to that variable.

And if you want it left-justified, use UNSTRING ... DELIMITED BY ALL SPACE INTO a-rubbish-field the-field-you-want.

Use - instead of plus.

Decide what you want for zero, for numbers less than one, Define an apporpriate number of -s, like PIC -(9)9.99 - who knows? You do.

Try the below code
Code:
05 A PIC -9(09).99.
05 B PIC -(09)9.99.
05 B-X  REDEFINES B PIC X(13).
05 C PIC X(13).
05 D PIC X(13).

MOVE A TO B
UNSTRING B-X
  DELIMITED BY ALL ' '
  INTO C D
END-UNSTRING
DISPLAY D

Variable D has what you want
