Hi,

I have one requirement where I need to write 100 as 0.100 . Is there any informat present to achieve this? Or I need to convert this by mathematical Operation only?

Thanks

INFORMATS are used to read in data, are you trying to modify how you import the data?

FORMATS are used to control how data is presented.

Seeing as that is a numerical operation of dividing by a thousand, it makes sense to write it as such. Formats are there to display data differently, not replace maths.

Yes, I need to modify the input 100 to .100 I think I need to perform mathematical Operation only as I did previously.
