How can I force field exit

OS/400
Ever since we upgraded the 400 to version 6.1, I have a problem with my numeric fields. It does not appear that the Check(FE) works with the keyboard shift attribute of an 'S" We use the 'S' so the employee's do not have to enter the decimal point. If a field was entered as ________245 and they wanted to change it to just 5 (for example) they enter a 5 then tab to the next line. my screen winds up with a 50000000245' How can I stop the while using the keyboard shift attribute of 'S'? We never had this problem until we upgraded!

Software/Hardware used:
O/S 400 V6R1

    Is this terminal entry or emulator? If terminal, what kind? If emulator, which one, and what is the PC OS? If iSeries Access, what release is on the PC and what is its service level? The service level is most important. -- Tom

    You may also want to look at CHECK(RZ) right adjust zero fill.If you can provide the info Tom suggested it will help. Another though just came to mind,  I'd double check the keyboard mapping if you are using Client Access.The field exit key may not be what you think it is.
