Subject: Re: Best. informat in input function?
Thanks to all who responded to my question...very informative.
Gerhard - your response:
And the informat, if BEST10. or 10. is not too important, but don't use
106 data test;
109 put _all_;
112 put _all_;
really helped. I finally realized what my problem was before I posted the
question in the first place. Initially I was using:
thinking that the "3" in "10.3" was covering me for 3 decimal places
rather then dividing my value by 10^3. I was unaware that informats
worked like this.
Then I switched to best. to solve my problem, but as you (and others) have
mentioned 10. should work well too.
You've also opened my eyes to some other issues with your post that I
fortunately don't have to deal with at the moment.
