We have a library with some tables, these tables have some value fields with length as 8 and format as 15.2.
After formatting these values, it has to be written into an external file . For formatting, I am using the following proc
LOW-<0 = '999999999999.99-'
0-HIGH = '999999999999.99 '
After running the job, when I checked the output , I found a strange behaviour. Some of the
values are decremented by .01 (compared to that displayed in the online SAS).
This is not happening in all the fields but only happening in selective records and fields.
I am unable to establish any pattern for this and also unable to understand this behaviour also.
Could somebody advise me on the possible reasons and the corrective measures.
