I have an issue with representation of decimal values.
i defined it with an informat 30.20 and format 30.20, but the output is truncated as SAS stores only a maximum of 8 bytes i.e. 16 places.
Which format should i define to have the precision without truncation. This precision is mandatory in my case for calcualtions and reporting. Losing the precision would be an issue.
I tried best32. too. It did not work.

SAS handles up to 15 digits of significance in numeric variables.
