    Try entering conversion exit 'NUMCV' in the screen field attributes. This field attribute is within the "Dict" tab/attribute section with the label "Conv.Exit". All you need to do is enter NUMCV in this field attribute (for the type DEC screen field in question) and then activate your screen.

    This worked for me when I tested it. Before adding the conversion exit, my DEC field (with reference to a type I variable) was blank. After adding the conversion exit NUMCV, the zero appeared in my entry field. Notice that if the field were not open for input the zero would show up even without the conversion exit.

    <i>Note: If NUMCV does not work out for you, then there might be a better conversion exit, or (even more fun) you could write your own conversion exit.</i>

    Best Regards,
