Hi,
I have a requirement where to show an amount with a sign suppressing the zeroes in it.

The field has been defined as
Code:

05 EDIT-FIELD        PIC  +ZZZ,ZZ9.99  VALUE ZERO.


when i move an amount of 993.91 in it the value displayed is
Code:

+   993.91


with first 3 bytes as spaces.

Would there be any fields where i could have display as +993.91

Code:
05 EDIT-FIELD        PIC  ++++,+9.99.


What's with the VALUE clause? If used, that'd show you 0000000000.
