Hi,

Could anyone please tell me the Actual and Usage of packed decimal in FOCUS?

I can find the following in one of the master component:

Code:
FIELD=PRRIDFEE,                  USAGE=P13.2,    ACTUAL=P6,   $
FIELD=BNTKBAMT,                  USAGE=P13.2,    ACTUAL=P6,   $


Does the usage needs to be P13.2?? 11.2 is enough am i correct??

In

Code:
FIELD=TOT_RMD_AMT,               USAGE=P13.2MB,  ACTUAL=P6,   $ 

What does MB stants for?

Also Please let me know where I can find Focus documentation.

Hello,

IIRC, the M specifies a floating $ and the B indicates that negative numbers should be shown in brackets.
