one solution is .. unload data from source table..
convert the file using cobol program to 16,0 length.. based on business rules provided by the client.

load that file to target db2 table.

I used a JCL to convert 13,2 to 15,2 but from 15,2 I have to load to a 16,0 table.
I am not able to write a code for that. Can u please give an idea how to write that code

well you are going to truncate data if you go from 13,2 (or 15,2) to 16,0.
why do you want to do that?
