I'm having problems getting the XML-GENERATE to render edited numerics correctly.

I have a (large) source structure that contains a variety of numeric edited fields, such as Z(14)9.99 BLANK WHEN ZERO; Z(7)9.99 BLANK WHEN ZERO. etc as well as many PIC X(n) elements.

PIC X(n) elements are being rendered correctly, eg:

<another_node>some text</another_node>

(no trailing spaces)

but the numeric edited fields are being rendered as, eg:

<some_edited_num2>   34.56</some_edited_num2>

(I don't want leading spaces showing for non-zero content)

so, I can simply redefine my input structure to be all PIC X(n), and add some MOVE statements .

or is there a better option ?
