Hi Rob,

That's kind of interesting.  In your working statement

    values cast(15.2 - 2.1 as numeric(15, 3))

it didn't complain about the 15.2 or the 2.1.  I tried

    values cast(15,2 - 2,1 as numeric(15, 3))

and it had no complaints with that either.

The help for

Decimal point . . . . . . . . *comma

says

*COMMA
The representation for the decimal point is a comma.

but it obviously takes either. (v7r3)

it works.
Then I try F13

Decimal point . . . . . . . . *comma
And try this
values cast(15.2 - 2.1 as numeric(15,3))
I get: SQL0104 Token ( was not valid. Valid tokens: ).
But if I try this:
values cast(15.2 - 2.1 as numeric(15, 3))
it works. It just looks funny to this Yank as:
VALUES
13,100

But it's best to just get into the habit of adding the space instead of relying upon adding stuff like DECMPT.
