Formatting the field

Hi folks,

Iam facing some problem with the formatting of a field used in the Print program of a SAP script.

I have a floating point number 1.6785E2. I want to convert it to the form 167.85 including the commas. i.e. for example the value is 1.234567E5, then i want the output as '12,345.67'. Any FM or means to acheive this ?

Thanks and Regards,

Hi vijay,

1. in the sapscript layout,



2. from help.



If you specify an exponent of 0, then the number is displayed without using the exponent representation. This has the same effect as completely omitting the specification of an exponent: &symbol(E0)& has the same effect as &symbol(E)&

In this example, the PLMK-SOLLWERT field is assumed to have the value 123456.78 and to be of data type FLTP.

&PLMK-SOLLWERT& -> 1.23456780000000E05

&PLMK-SOLLWERT(E3)& -> 123.456780000000E03

&PLMK-SOLLWERT(E6)& -> 0.12345678000000E06

&PLMK-SOLLWERT(E0)& -> +123456.780000000

&PLMK-SOLLWERT(E)& -> +123456.780000000
