I have an issue with fielda defined as numeric 8. I need to convert to character. The problem is there are non- numeric leading characters so when I just move to a defined alpha field I have unreadable characters in front and the character field is not left justified.  

Does anyone know how I can code this to get the fondly move the numeric data.
