Hi ,

In my input file I have below value and it has last four characters
after decimal point. Can you please tell me how to read this ?.
I cannot use S9(7)V9(4), becuase my sign is not stored last character.
Also 9(8)v9(4) is not supports as it has '+' character at starting.

+00319310710

Thanks and Regards,
Kumar.M

In that same manual, you might want the Intrinsic Function NUMVAL.
