I have a screen variable which is alphanumeric of length 5 where we can get the value of any length upto 5 but we would need to store the data of fixed length 5 in table with the starting character as '+' or '-'.

For example :-
I am getting the input as " 3 " so we would store the value in table as "+0003".
"-001" -> "-0001"
" -5 " -> "-0005"
" +03" -> "+0003"

please let me know how can i proceed.

At this forum people only can advise you: WHAT IS, OR MAY BE WRONG IN THE CODE YOU PRESENTED.

People at this forum usually do not do your own job in full.
Nevertheless, there are also exceptions... icon_pai.gif
