Hi there,
Got this little problem :-
SETGT on a file, then READP (using *in70) - now if we run off
the top of the file *in70 = on and we bypass the rest of the file.

Now, here comes the problem, there is a field from this file 
(defined as zoned decimal) that is used for calculation later on.

If we hit tof (*in70 on), this field will hold hex '40' (spaces), which is
wrong - it should hold zeros. No matter what I do to this field it ALWAYS
gives a decimal data error.

I've tried a bit of code like:
*IN70  IFEQ *ON
          Z-ADD *ZEROS GBBKXV
(or)     MOVE *ZEROS GBBKXV
          ENDIF

this bit of code works but later on when I want to ADD GBBKXV to another
field (packed decimal) I get the error.

Anyone got any ideas ??
Cheers
Marc
