I am creating a Define field as a P9.3 and by default the value of an empty field displays as .000. I want it to be null/blank. Any thoughts on how I can achieve this?

Or use zero suppress.

Field/P9.3S = MyField ;

Very much depends on what you are doing with the report.

If the format is some sort of export like CSV or Excel, and you want the "blank" then use MISSING, but if its a formatted output like HTML or PDF, then this should work for you.
