Have you tried setting an edit code on the fields?  Hit F16 on the field
from Specify column formatting.

Bob,  

I tried your suggestion.  I took the quantity field (floating decimal),
multipled by 1 and set the result to be 7.2.  

 Field            Expression                         Column Heading
Len   Dec
 TOTAL       itqty * 1                              total
7     2

Here's the result

               Transaction Qty                              total
000001  1.000000000000000E+000   10000.00E-004

Mike


9.000000000000000E+002   90000.00E-002

Hi Mike, 
I'm not exactly sure what you are defining as a floating point decimal, 
using the Define result fields, create a new field by multiplying the 
floater field by 1 (which will not change the value, and define the 
created field with 7 and 2 decimals.

[MAPICS-L] AS400 Query and floating point decimal field 






I am writing an AS400 query. One of the fields is a floating point 
decimal. How would I convert this floating point field to a regular 
decimal (7.2. numeric)? The report writing tool is AS400 query. 

TIA
