Load your data to the iSeries as an alpha field. Then copy/move the
data to a file with the numeric field you need. First thing to try
is CPYF-- it's remarkably adept at reformatting data these days! If
that doesn't work, it would take a program. But you won'y have to
change that half dozen!

If we make the field alphanumeric then it works perfectly but we
would rather not change half a dozen programs to make them handle an
alpha field instead of the numeric.
Anybody any ideas?
