Easytrieve Report Generator

Issue/Introduction

With true r11.6, output report has Spaces (Hex 40's), instead of Blanks (NULLS) like EZT 6.4 and r11.6-c have.


Environment

Release : 11.6

Component : EASYTRIEVE REPORT GEN

Resolution

The described behavior is expected in Easytrieve 11.6, because of 6.4 using Get locate and Put Locate, (replacing nulls at the end of a record because getting the information from a buffer), and 11.6 using GET MOVE and PUT MOVE, (replacing spaces X'40's at the end of the record, getting the information from within the Easytrieve/COBOL program). This is the new expectation with r11.6.
