I want to comapare x & y of different pic clauses.

x pic 99v9(6) & y pic s9v9(8)comp-3.

If I want to move y value to x without any truncation - ...I don't want to change the x's pic clause...

Need a suggestion

x pic 99v9(6) & y pic s9v9(8)comp-3.

MOVE VALUES FROM Y TO X LIKE


I mean 1 interger and 6 decimal

Y = 2.666666
if you move Y to X then
X will have the value 02.666666


pls correct me if i am wrong

Hi Siva

It is not possible to do the move operation you specified without truncation.Anyway you will lose precision by 2 decimal points.

Thanks
Arun

You could reduce the degree of truncation by multiplying y by 10 giving x.....only the least significant digit would be lost....
