Alternate way to input negative numbers

To enter a negative number in a 5250 signed numeric field, users can enter a minus sign character (-) in the first position of the field, instead of using a Field Minus and incurring a round trip to the server. This allows for faster entry of large quantities of negative numbers into 5250 signed numeric fields. The ZIETrans server emulates a Field Minus keypress for each 5250 signed numeric field entered with a leading minus sign character. Any unwanted prefilled data must be cleared from the field before tabbing to another field. Users should not enter a minus sign in the first position and also press Field Minus, Field Plus, or Field Exit.
