Hi,

A variable defined as fix decimal pic 9v99. And in certain situation want to send NULL ( no value -blank) and not send the default of zero.
How is it possible to send NULL in the same field that will accomodate sending even zeroes, decimal value ( 0.68 ), and whole values.

Kindly suggest.

Hi,
First of all,be clear about what you want to ask. Only if your question is clear, forum mates will attempt to respond you with proper info.

Now,I assume that you spoke about the variable that is of the format fixed decimal and is declared as PIC 9V99. If you were looking for a declaration that can accomodate blank in certain cases and numeric value(0.68) in some cases,then PIC ZVZZ can be used.

Regards,
Sridevi.
