If a subsequent programmer changes the user-defined edit code then your shop has other problems. --------------------------------- Booth Martin http://www.martinvt.com --------------------------------- -------Original Message------- From: Midrange Systems Technical Discussion Date: 09/13/05 13:04:48 To: midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: EDTMSK and EDTWRD ? Ok, If I define my Edit Code in QEDIT5 - QEDIT9, and then after sometime, any other programmer change the QEDIT5 again as per his requirement, my program will be collapsed, so I am looking for the alternate to using QEDIT5-QEDIT9 ? My current requirement is to display '01-01' and I tried using : EDTWRD :- '0 - ' EDTMSK:- ' & ' And passed an Integer value of: 101 to the DDS, it displayed as : 1-01, while I need it to be : 01-01 I tried using Right Justified Zero Fill Option of SDA, but it says, cannot use this option with EDTWRD/EDTMSK. Any idea please or alternate to display 101 as 01-01 ?
