commas used for seperation of series of items:
like
parameters in CALL statement,
parameters in USING statement,
list of VALUES on an 88-level,
targets of a MOVE etc...

Even most of the time for edited numeric picture clause also comma is used..


Is it this you are looking for?

Anuj,

OMG, don't get me started on THAT.... icon_eek.gif

In this case, it's the DECIMAL POSITION that applies, nevermind the COMMA icon_wink.gif

Regards,
