Adding leading zeroes in jcl

Post by Arati Kabra » Wed Sep 30, 2015 1:51 pm


I am working with a fixed width file. I have one field with length 10. But sometimes data in that field can be less than 10 digits. In that case, I want
that filed to be padded with zeroes at left. Can anyone please help me.

Below is code snippet:
if 623/10 NE BLANKS THEN
ANALYZE 623/10
IF ANALEN lt '00010' Then
