If your output was char(20) (right-justified, left padded with zeroes), would the application able to handle the conversion from char(20) to a numeric field with 20 positions? Apparently in that application that size of field is valid, so there must be some type command to convert from char to numeric.

This seems like bad design me. I would never define a static field, such as employee number, as a numeric.
