Congrats on solving the problem. You hit the nail on the head by examining the data. It looks like the specs for the output or specs for the input were not accurate or provided.
Go TEAM.

In case you are interested...

I found out what the problem was.. my numbers were padded with SPACES. Freaking mainframe...

So here's how I solved it, after I dumped the whole thing in a VARCHAR2(4000) and substring'd it:

FPS_ACC_HK_POINTS1      POSITION(1281:1283)
                                        CHAR
                                        NULLIF FPS_ACC_HK_POINTS1=BLANKS
        

"TO_NUMBER(REPLACE(:FPS_ACC_HK_POINTS1, CHR(0)))", that should allow for me to post something off-topic next week!

Have a great weekend all
