Re: Decimal Data Error



fixed



Tim,

1.. How is this program being run/called?????  Makes a diff on how you
want the variables to be recieved...

2...if there's any doubt, use 15.5 fields and then Z-ADD them into what
you're looking for....  My SWAG is that if you changed the parms to 15.5's
then Z-ADD'd them you'ld be OK....
