Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This document provides a listing of the COBOL source code for viewing. Additional information about this program may be obtained by sending an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com

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 document available on the SimoTime Web Site

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section SimoRA12, What It Does

The SimoRA12 routine (or callable program) will right-adjust the digits and zero-fill the left-most (or high-order) bytes with leading zeroes. For example, if a value of 123 is passed to the SimoRA12 routine the following will be returned in the pass area.

********************************************************************
RIGHTADJ 123
Right Adjusted Value......... 000000000123
RC=0000, Value is Numeric

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section SimoRA12, How To Use

The following will right-adjust the digits and zero-fill the left-most (or high-order) bytes with leading zeroes.

           MOVE 'RIGHTADJ'     to RA12-REQUEST
           MOVE '123         ' to RA12-BUFFER
           CALL 'SIMORA12'  using RA12-PASS-AREA

In the preceding example the contents of RA12-PASS-AREA will be '000000000123' upon return from the call to SIMORA12.

For a detailed description of the pass area refer to the COBOL Copy File section of this document that defines the structure of the pass area.
