Hi,

My Requirement is to define a variable name of length=4 bytes but it should not hold the data more than 2 bytes.

For e.g. in my Panel screen.
% DATE = _Month/ _Day/_Year %

where '_' is for input and '/' is text (to be displayed on screen.

Here, to take 2 bytes for Month,Day, year variable, I have to define the variable like _M, _D ,_Y.

Is there any other way where I can define long names but to store shorter data.
