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.

Nic,

I tried EDIT=(TT.TTTT) but it results 0.5600, not 0.5625.

Is this right way of using EDIT MASK?

It worked now. Thanks to Arun raj reply on the below listed posted.

I multiplied the input 22.50 by 100, then divide by 40 and it provided the desired results. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for your time, Nic.
