I am modifying a legacy app that uses the BARCODE keyword.
Barcode lengths have changed over the years and this app has a fixed-length barcode field in the DDS.
Obviously if the field isn't filled up, trailing blanks are included in the barcode that is printed on the page. I'm wondering if anyone has a trick that can prevent those trailing blanks from showing up in the barcode? The direction I'm going in is obvious--multiple fields, each with a different length--but that's just crazy.
Are there any alterntives?
