Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of programs provides an example of a routine that will Right Adjust (or Right Justify) a text string within a numeric field and fill the left-most or high-order bytes with zeroes. The resulting field is also tested for numeric values and a return code (RA12-RESPOND) is set to zero (0) if numeric and eight (8) if not numeric. Two COBOL programs are provided. The first program is a demonstration program that reads a file containing "RIGHTADJ-info" records and calls the second COBOL program that actually does the right-adjust, zero-fill processing.

The objective of the right-adjust, zero-fill routine is to create a numeric field that will contain all digits with leading zeroes in the leftmost positions and be properly aligned to the units position. If the requirement is to right-justify, left-justify or center a text string within a field with the appropriate leading and/or trailing space characters then refer to the text-justification routine .

Both COBOL programs are written using the VS COBOL II dialect and also work with COBOL for MVS and COBOL/370. A JCL member is provided to run the job as an MVS batch job on an IBM mainframe or as a project with Micro Focus Mainframe Express (MFE) running on a PC with Windows. A Windows Command (.CMD) file is provided to run the job on a PC with Micro Focus Net Express. This program may serve as a tutorial for new programmers and as a reference for experienced programmers. Additional information is provided in the Downloads and Links to Similar Pages section of this document.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Programming Objectives

The following is a list of the functions provided in this example.

1 Demonstrate how to Right-Adjust a text string within a field.
2 Do a Zero-Fill for the left-most or high-order bytes.
3 Do an erase to End-Of-Field after the first space.
4 Test the right-adjusted field for all numeric values.
  Program Objectives for the Right-Adjust Programs

The first task performed by the SimoRA12 routine is to erase to the End-Of-Field. This feature will scan the field from left to right and erase (change to a space character) any characters after the first space is encountered. The next task is to right-adjust the non-space characters and zero-fill the leftmost (or high-order) bytes in the field. The final task is to test the results for a numeric value. If the resulting field is numeric the return code (or RA12-RESPOND) is set to zero, If the resulting field is not numeric the return code (or RA12-RESPOND) is set to 0008.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Programming Input and Output

The following is an example of the contents of the input or RIGHTADJ-info file (RA12GET1). Notice the 5th statement contains a non-numeric value. The 8th statement contains an embedded space that will cause the erase to End-Of-Field to remove (or erase) any characters after the embedded space character.

The following is an example of the output file (RA12PUT1) based on the preceding RIGHTADJ-info file . Notice the 5th statement contains a non-numeric value. The 8th statement contains an embedded space that will cause the erase to End-Of-Field to remove (or erase) any characters after the embedded space character.

The following table is an overview of the data strings used in the pass area.

Field Name Description
RA12-REQUEST This is an eight character data string and should contain the following in upper case.
RIGHTADJ  This keyword causes the right-adjust routine (SIMORA12) to right-adjust the specified field.
This calling program must provide one of the above as a request. Otherwise, a non-zero return code will be set in the following result field. This data string is not changed by the right-adjust routine.
RA12-REPOND This is a four byte binary data string and is used by the conversion routine to pass a return code. If the conversion request is successful the value in this data string will be zero.
RA12-BUFFER This is the twelve (12) character field that will be right-adjusted with a zero-fill of the left-most or high-order bytes.
RA12-NUMBER This is a redefinition of the twelve (12) byte field redefined as a numeric field.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Summary

This suite of programs provides an example of a routine that will Right Adjust (or Right Justify) a text string within a numeric field and fill the left-most or high-order bytes with zeroes. This document may be used to assist as a tutorial for new programmers or as a quick reference for experienced programmers.

In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. This document and the links to other documents are intended to provide a greater awareness of the Data Management and Application Processing alternatives.

The documentation and software were developed and tested on systems that are configured for a SimoTime environment based on the hardware, operating systems, user requirements and security requirements. Therefore, adjustments may be needed to execute the jobs and programs when transferred to a system of a different architecture or configuration.

SimoTime Services has experience in moving or sharing data or application processing across a variety of systems. For additional information about SimoTime Services or Technologies please send an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com or call 415 883-6565. We appreciate hearing from you.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions or need assistance with converting non-relational data structures simply give us a call at 415 883-6565 or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
