Currently when I do not use a certain element I have it set to pad to zero if it is a numeric field and pad to spaces if it is a alphanumeric field. What I would like to have is the following:
* If the group containing the elements is entirely empty, pad every field to spaces whether they are numeric or alphanumeric.
* If the group is in use and has even one element used, then use the current padding method I described at the beginning.
So I guess it will really only matter for numeric output. In summary, if I have a numeric element that is in an unused group, then I want it to be padded to spaces, but if the same element is in a group that is used, I would like the element padded to zeros if the element is empty.
Does anyone have any idea how I can accomplish this?
