Quick Format Question

Hi All:

Just a quick question - is there a format with decimals that does not produce leading zero?

I am using a format of 15.2, which prints "0.00" for zero and I would like to see ".00"  - no leading zero.

I would rather not use a custom format if it can be helped.

Thoughts ??

As far as I can see, the only way you can achieve this is with a picture format.  The SAS online documentation gives an example of how to do this, it's near the bottom of the page (the NOZEROS format)

0 = '.00'
