Hi,

I have a comma delimiter file created from Easytrieve program and it should be send through Mainframe SAS with .CSV format.

The problem I was facing that was not able to get the leading zeros in the CSV file for numerics.

I goggled and found that if we use delimiter ' ",=" ' we can have the leading zeros in the CSV file. So i used the same and got the leading zeros along with =" infront of the value(="0078) icon_sad.gif .

If anyone have any idea how we can implement this through Easytrieve program please let me know.

Thanks,
Suresh

Can you show sample input, expected output and output received?

Can you show the code creating a record?

Normally what people want is the zeros to go away and don't know how to do that, so I'm interested in how you got rid of them.

Why do you want leading zeros? It's a alpha-numeric field that happens to contain numbers?

Are you sure it is not Exel getting rid of them? (define the column as "text" rather than numeric).
