This parameter defines the padding character at the network level.

  • Fixed format: Pads the record with this character up to the size defined by NLRECL. If NPAD is not set, the padding character is ' '.
  • Variable format: Defines the character used to unpad the record. If NPAD is not set, the record is unchanged.
Note In addition to printable characters, you can also enter a non-printable character for NAPD or FPAD using the hexadecimal syntax: 0xHH. For example: 0xFC, 0xab, 0x00

For information on padding at the file level, see FPAD.
