Reply with quote

Hi,

I opened a file on browse mode with HEX on and I don't see spaces at the end

Code:
---------------------------------
IEA*1*000000002\                 
CCC5F5FFFFFFFFFE                 
951C1C0000000020


When I open the same file on View mode with Hex on I see spaces at the end

Code:
-------------------------
IEA*1*000000002\         
CCC5F5FFFFFFFFFE444444444
951C1C0000000020000000000


Please let me why this differennce comes in and does this file really has spaces at the end?

To expand on Prino's response.

In Browse mode, the nulls (no spaces) are telling you the record has ended (Prino's answer).

In View or Edit mode, you have the ability to add data to this area, thus extending the record with what you add.
