How can I format amount of LEADING ZEROS in DISPLAY?

Postby andrisole » Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:31 pm

Hi,

I am trying to make one exercise, which requires to me to make a report on different branches.

I need branches to have exactly 6 digits, in case if there is brach 123, it will be displayed as 000123.
What I am trying to do is to include leading zeros using LZ statement:
HEADER('SORTCODE') ON(1,4,BI,A0,LZ)
,

but it prints too many leading zeros, and I do not know how to remove extra ones.

   SORTCODE
-----------
 0000000000
 0000000001
 0000000012
 0000010101
 0000010203
 0000012017
 0000040101
 0000090909
 0000101010
 0000101101
 0000110695
 0000111111
 0000111112
 


Can anyone help please?

Hello,

Unsure if this is resolved, in case it still isn't, look at the usage of EDIT mask under the DISPLAY operator that you are using.
You can use a mask: E'999999'; the edit mask should give you the desired output as you've restricted the data to 6 bytes in the mask.
Else use a simple BUILD command with the desired EDIT pattern.
