Conversion decimal DEC(18,2) to EBCDIC format with leading sign

Conversion decimal DEC(18,2) to EBCDIC format with leading sign

Hi all,

in our project we have to create a flate file in EBCDIC format from PowerCenter via PowerExchange. In normal case I use the data type UZONED for DECIMAL value. My problem is that I have to write a leading sign for DECIMAL value. I tryed with data type ZONED which is allowing sign. But the sign will be placed at the end and with undefined character "{".

Ex: 000000000000000000{ ==>+000000000000000000

Should I define the leading sign in the copybook like S9(16)V9(2) or is there another option I don't know.

Many thanks in advance.

Best Regards
