Compile a program in RPGIV

We have a third-party software on the iSeries, and I am trying to compile a program in RPGIV using one of the third-party tables that has a field that is 31 0P, but it gives me an error and takes the filed back to 30 positions. How can I get around this? We are currently on V5R1.
I would declare the field as alpha numeric and overlay the field in a data structure with your numeric field for use internally. You will also have to check the first character to insure it does not overflow.
