The only three edit options related to negative numbers are:

  • B - Encloses negative numbers in parentheses.
  • R - Places CR after negative numbers.
  • - - (5.2.3 new feature) display a minus sign to the right of negative numeric data.

Otherwise, you may need to do it yourself.

Regards,
Mikel

Actually there are others. The most useful
is the format of '%', and is described as..
FORMAT=D8.2% , ...

Just put the percent character after the type and length.
