Are you asking help to determine how it happened or how to correct it.
My guess is it happen with a cut and paste
How to fix is to a scan the field for an value lower that a blank (Hex ’40’) and replace it with a blank

    HAve a text input screen... Just to be sure, is that a 5250 screen image? Input might come through a browser form or a GUI or other means. If this is a DDS screen, please show the DDS for the text field. Also, what is your system QCCSID value? Is this an English language system, and is the workstation also English language? Tom
