We used FMTDTA command to copy data from one PF to another PF. However, in the target file, one of the fields (length 8 packed decimal), got junk values like (+++++++++++). The file from which the data was copied had all correct values. Also we ensured that both the files (source and target files) have the same structure. Can anyone help me understand what exactly could be the problem due to which junk values are getting copied into target file.
