  • Maximum value using move

    Hello,

    I want to do something like this:

    MOVE '0000000000000000' MYFIELD

    But the Move command only lets me write '00000000'... how can i do this?

    Re: Maximum value using move

    are you just going to move all zeros? if so then you can do this...

    MOVE *ZEROS MYFIELD


    you can also do this...

    EVAL MYFIELD = 'STRING TEXT HERE'

    or

    EVAL MYFIELD = *ZEROS

      Thanks, can i use EVAL eventhough my rpg program is an RPG III ?

      I will use zeros for one field and '999999999' for another one.

        bigstring = *all'0';

        eval somefield = *HIVAL


        eval somefield = *LOVAL

          move *all'0' myfield


          I think that is right. its along the lines of what jamie is talkin about. but his won't work as is in RPG III. that is a /free way of doing it.

          I am correct right? /free is only ILE?

              You are correct that /free is only allowed in RPG-IV (aka RPG-ILE). However, the MOVE command will work in fixed-format. MOVE is not allowed in free-format

                  Just tell your co-workers that America is the "Land of the Free" and if they still ague ask to see their green cards
