>> You need to remove the leading zeros in a numeric data and display it in a character string (basically to left align). Since RPG provides a simple, elegant solution and is an ILE language, why not simply write this (and any other similar routines in RPG?). It is not as if you have to buy the compiler - you own it if you own the COBOL one. I see no point in writing ugly COBOL code when the RPG option is available. Jon Paris Partner400 www.Partner400.com
