Is there a way to make all of my calculations, defines and computes, truncate by defualt instead of rounding up?

However, there is one value that i would like to comtinue rounding, WEEKS, so is there some way of just rounding one value?

Charles,
It would be helpful if you posted any code that you have written thus far.

You should also look at the properties of different numeric types.

Defenitely, there is no global or configurational setting to do this. You have to go by different numeric types, as needed.

You may want to create a define function for rounding and one for truncating ... so that you can use those functions throughout your entire app ...

Maybe take a look again on the answer I gave you on the rounding matter.
It depends if you want to SHOW a value only as if it is rounded/truncated or if you also want the truncation/rounding be done for real.
The sum of all rounded figures might give you an other result.

DEFINE FUNCTION CHGNUM(NUMVAL/D10.2)
CHGNUM1/P10 = NUMVAL;
END
-RUN


Gamp, Something of this sort. Yeah... The functions CHGNUM can be used along with all the Define and Compute fields as needed.


Thanks,
