Would it work to define a workfield, and then move the &FILELABEL into the new field and use the new field?
Another thought is to define a field with value 'X"00"' and the use the
%trim() command with the 2nd parm as the field name?

V7 R3 -
I have a CL program that is calling another program to get a file name. The field is 256 characters long.
It has the value for the file name and then the rest is populated with hex zeroes.
The file name is then to be used in the CPYTOIMPF command, and it chokes if there are Nulls in the file name.
I tried %TRIM with no second parm, but that only works for blanks.
I tried %Trim using the second parm, but not sure I specified it right:
VALUE(%TRIM(&FILELABEL 'X"00"')) I tried multiple times and this is the only way I got it to compile.
I initialized the fields to blanks, but when they come back to me the file name has those x'00'.
