I have a file with numeric data defined as alpha. I am converting it to numeric, I am using arrays to process the data. Here is my problem.
I get the error "the target for a numeric operation is too smal to hold the result"
the code in question is Numb(cnt) = %dec(Alpha(Cnt):9:2)
Cnt = 1, the array Numb is 9.2 dim(24) the array Alpha is 9 dim(24)
Alpha(cnt) = '010606490' it should convert to 0106064.90 (decimal point should be implied).
any thoughts. I converted 499 records before it read this one
