List, I found out what the problem is.

The field in question was previously edited using DTW_EDIT_CODES and the "J"
code.  The negative symbol passed from the left to the right (mathematically
incorrect for NET.DATA) and the DTW_FORMAT sees this as an invalid number.

Sorry for the inconveniences,

Hi list,

I have a field (nrlhtd) that has a value of  -.01.  I am using this function to
format it:

@DTW_FORMAT(nrlhtd, "", "2", nrlhtd)

It is giving me the error: NET.DATA Error: Function call to DTW_FORMAT failed.
Error Number is 4001.  The book says that "A parameter contains an invalid
number value.".

It have sense if we say that this function will not allow a negative field value
but the manual gives this as an example:
@DTW_FORMAT(" - 12.73", "", "4", result)
Returns: result = "-12.7300"

So I am confused.  What is going on?

TIA,
