'TESTN ' RPG command is not working

'TESTN ' RPG command is to indicate that char value is present in variable. In RPG400 this command is not working if the char value occurs in the last position. For example: Assume Field1(5)='123F4' then TESTN command works fine. Whereas if field1(5)='1234F' then TESTN command is not working.

This Operations code has never worked properly. I use xlate to check for numerics:

D CN              C                   CONST('0123456789')
D CB              C                   CONST('          ')
C     CN:CB         XLATE     TA0COD        WKCOD  
C     TA0COD        IfNe      WKCOD   
...Not a numeric             
C                   Else
C                   End
