But if the bad records are scattered at different positions in the file, then
it is difficult to exclude using OVRDBF. Actually, we cannot modify the bad
records as it is a client machine. And asking the client to fix the bad data is
the last option I go for. I am trying to find a way to pull these bad records
within the ILE program and print a report. This way, my program will not blow
out and I can process the good records. When this packed field contains blanks,
and when we move this packed field to an alpha field, instead of getting a
DataDecimal Error, is there anyway, we can do some tricks to move blanks to the
alpha field?

I hope I am not confusing. TIA.
