Hi

I'm having a compute statement like below

Code:
COMPUTE 2XXM-VARPC = (100 * ((100 + 2XXM-VARPC) /
                      102,10) - 100)             

When ever the result of this statement is +ve, it is rounded to the small number and when ever the result of the statement is -ve then it is rounded to the next higher number.

Say for an example is I'm passing 13.44 (to 2XXM-VARPC) then the expected result must be 11.11. but I'm getting 11.00.

like wise whenever the result is negative say -9.10 then it is rounded to 10.00.

The field 2XXM-VARPC is declared as below.

Code:
09  2XXM-VARPCX.                                       
    11  2XXM-VARPC                 PIC S9(03)V99 COMP-3

Could someone please explain me why the statement working like this.? Am i missing something here.?


Bunch of Thanks in advance!

The last thing you are doing is multiplying by 100. Means the content of the V99 will always be zero.

You must do multiply first, divide last. Just rearrange it and you should get what you want.

This is plagiarism, just to get that SPAM in at the bottom.

If there are active moderators around, expect to lose your account and get your IP address banned.

It is not a good idea to spam computer programmers. There will of course be no connection to anything unusual which happens to any of your accounts over the coming months, but it is still not a good idea.
