Hi,
I am new to easytrieve and would like to know the declaraion for Float
Say for example:
we give A for characters, P for packed decimal, B for Binary etc.
Similarly what would it be for floating point variables...?

Cheers,
Rarvins

We used N for them

Code:
VAR-RATE            004  N 3

Hi,

I shall try out N, but I just had a basic doubt.I thot that N was only for integers.But since a float value can contain decimal points as well, will ir work....? Correct me if I am wrong

Cheers,
Rarvins

Hi rarvins,

Yeap it will work
As i specify VAR-RATE will take 7 bytes 4 befor decimal & 3 after decimal
its like DECIMAL(7,3).

Just what is your definition of "float"?
The N is packed decimal.
