    ****************************************************************
    The REXX EXEC *.SDSQEXCE(DSQAEL0A) processes the *Z and *C edit
    codes (LZ, PZ, DCZ, etc.) as numeric values.  It tries to add
    the Z, C, or ZC to another numeric value and fails with
    "Bad arithmetic conversion".
    Code was written to anticipate only edit codes like L2.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Logic was amended in DSQAEL0B to avoid performing arithmetic
    operations on nonnumeric data.
    
    A blank will appear in the laid out form for any columns that
    have been assigned *Z or *C edit codes.
