i want to create a function let call it pic9 which will do the following action
 - it will have two integer values as argument (lets call it  numb, size)
 - it will return a string which will have length=size and it will contain numb right justified  and leading zeros in its rest bytes.

for example

numb     size          result
10             5            00010
10             2            10
10             4            0010
10             3            010

FUNCTION : pic9(ai_num,ai_size)

integer i_len
string ls_num,ls_zeros,ls_return

li_len = ai_size - len(string(ai_num))
If li_len > 0 Then
   ls_zeros = Fill('0',li_len)
   ls_return = ls_zeros + string(li_num)
Else
   ls_return = string(li_num)
End If
