what makes You think that an s9(11)v99 <thingy> is smaller than an s9(09)v99 one ???

whatever... it should not be difficult to test what happens
cheers

As long as there is nothing you mind truncating to the left, what's the problem?

S0C7 has nothing to do with the move, but everything with invalid data.

You can't get a S0C7 by moving a larger field with valid contents to a smaller field.
