You can only specify the JUSTIFIED clause at the elementary level. JUST
is an abbreviation for JUSTIFIED, and has the same meaning.
You cannot specify the JUSTIFIED clause:
When the JUSTIFIED clause is specified for a receiving item, the data is
aligned at the rightmost character position in the receiving item. Also:
- For numeric, numeric-edited, or alphanumeric-edited items
- In descriptions of items described with the USAGE IS INDEX clause
- X For items described as USAGE IS POINTER, USAGE IS PROCEDURE-POINTER,
X or USAGE IS OBJECT REFERENCE
- X For external or internal floating-point items
- X For an edited DBCS item
- X For date fields
- With level-66 (RENAMES) and level-88 (condition-name) entries
- If the sending item is larger than the receiving item, the leftmost
characters are truncated.
- If the sending item is smaller than the receiving item, the unused
character positions at the left are filled with spaces.
X The JUSTIFIED clause can be specified for a DBCS item (except edited DBCS
X items). When JUSTIFIED is specified for a receiving item, the data is
X aligned on the rightmost character position. If the sending item is
X larger than the receiving item, extra characters are truncated on the
X left. If the sending item is smaller than the receiving item, any unused
X positions on the left are filled with DBCS blanks.
If you omit the JUSTIFIED clause, the rules for standard alignment are
followed (see "Alignment Rules" in topic 18.104.22.168).
The JUSTIFIED clause does not affect initial settings, as determined by
the VALUE clause.
