    Hi Everyone,

    Is there a way to force 4GL output fields to be left-aligned, regardless of data type?  I know this can be done for input fields, but I'm specifically wondering about output fields.

    Here's what my code looks like now:

    *------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    $SCREEN    ZY912    S
    [ZY91]                   ?Jrs Leave Plan Details
                       +      ]

                  |Company ;    ;         ;                              ;
                 |Employee ;         ;    ;                                        ;
             |Absence Plan ;          ;   ;                              ;
          |Structure Group ;          ;   ;                              ;
                 |Position ;            ; ;                              ;

       |Service Begin Date ;          ;
            |Accrual Basis ; ; ;          ;
             |Accrual Rate ;       ;
    |Last Pay Period Processed ;          ;

     

    and here is what the screen layout looks like:


    I'd like to push company, employee, and accrual rate to left align.  Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I have used the 2000-JUSTIFY-STRING, but this is good for text field formats.  I don't think you will be able to accomplish what you are looking to, since the specific output strings are defined as numeric.
