Hi Team,

I saw a similar issue in the forum where solution was never posted.

I have "XML GENERATE" in COBOL which works fine. Some of my elements in the structure for XML conversion can have empty values after they are mapped to an input file. For example, the XML structure is

Code:
01 cardRecord.
05 addrLine1 PIC X(20).
05 addrLine2 PIC X(20).
05 name PIC X(30).
05 businessName PIC X(26).


Here,after mapping this to the i/p XML file, I have non-empty values in addrLine1,addrLine2,name whereas my businessName field has empty values.

Is there any way for me to prevent the tag having empty values not getting displayed after XML-GENERATE statement like this ?

Code:
<businessName> </businessName>
(Note there is a blank space)

Please let me know if any more details are required.

Original post - http://ibmmainframes.com/about43457.html#ixzz6Day886QK

I am planning to suggest move NA to the attribute value for tag "businessName" if happens to be blank. Is this a good approach?

Also, if the suggested approach is not good, how do I eliminate that blank space from
Code:
<businessName> </businessName>
?

Many Thanks for all your help and support!
