I reworked some code and believe it is working.  Thanks to you and Charles for your help.
I am still going to play with 'C' to understand how to get that to work, but for now my immediate task is close to finished. Regards, Stephen M. Mooney

I have tried the dcl-s bignumber Float(8); in my RPG program but keep getting:"An assignment operator is expected with the EVAL operation. "
I thought I traced it down to PTF SF99701 which needed to be at release level 26 or higher, but after loading release level 37 I still get the same message.  Any suggestions?  Thanks. Regards, Stephen M. Mooney

You can use the earlier format for double if you need to:

    d bigNumber      s              4f
