 Posted: Thu Oct 05, 2017 4:05 pm    Post subject: Extend the decimal values in DIVISION Hi All, I am trying to perform DIVISION in DFSORT by dividing the value 22.50 by 40. I am getting the result '0.56' which is right. But is there any option to get the result from 0.NN to 0.NNNN say 0.5625 to extend the fractional part? Please let me know if I am missing anything above.
