Need help in moving Character field to numeric field in RPG. I have a character field of lenght 10 in the file and its was left aligned. Now I'm reading the file and get this value and moving to a numeric field of 20 length. I'm facing a problem while moving since its was a left aligned i'm not able to move to numeric field. Its populating the field with value follwed by Zeros. I need Zero prefix to the field value.
