Hi,
I need to display one leading zero if the number is less then 1.

I have already searched other threads in the forum and all suggest to use:
 SET CENT-ZERO=ON 
.

I have tried but with no success.

I have a field /P13.8. I would like, in the excel report, to have 0,20 and not ,20.

If I click right on the cell, the format is #,00000000.

Thanks for any help

SET CENT-ZERO=ON
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES/P20.8
BY COUNTRY
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
END

Seems to work for me. The generated Excel format is #0.00000000.

Hi Francis,
I use Focus on Mainframe, this could be the point.

If I open the file on the mainframe system I see in a cell:

 
<TD X:NUM class=xl100P13_8>-0.06250000</TD>            


The class xl100P13_8 is defined as:

 
.xl100P13_8                              
        àmso-style-parent:style0;        
        color:£000000;                   
        font-size:10.0pt;                
        font-family:"ARIAL";             
        text-align:right;                
        mso-number-format:"ç£.00000000"; 
        white-space:normal;              
        mso-font-charset:0;è    


Then I transfer the file with ftp (ascii mode) on the windows system to open it with excel.
If I save the file as htm, in the cell I see:

<td class=xl31 width=71 style='width:53pt' x:num="-6.25E-2">-,06250000</td>


The class xl31 is defined as:

 
.xl31
	{mso-style-parent:style0;
	color:black;
	mso-number-format:"\#\.00000000";
	text-align:right;
	white-space:normal;}


Is there any way to get the first zero in excel?

Thanks

The last time I used Focus on a mainframe we didn't have EXL2K as an output format so I'm sorry I can't help you. Hopefully someone with current mainframe experience will come forward.

Saving file as FORMAT EXCEL, SET CENT-ZERO=ON works properly but, unfortunly, I need to save it as EXL2K.

I was wondering if it is possible to use the SET STYLE section to define the numeric format but I have found nothing.

Thank

I'm not sure that I understand the issue completely. But if you're looking for the following RESULTS:
COUNTRY     SALESCST    SALESINT    SALESMOD    SALESVAL
ENGLAND    .24435009           0    24435009        0,24
FRANCE    6.95478276           6    95478275        6,95
ITALY     2.33567987           2    33567986        2,33
JAPAN     7.37364145           7    37364144        7,37
W GERMANY	 9.76414075           9    76414075        9,76


... then perhaps, in the mean time you can consider the following CODE which basically concatenates the INT and the MOD of your P20.8 value (thru some funky code):
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
COMPUTE SALESCST/D20.8 = IF COUNTRY EQ 'ENGLAND' THEN .24435009 ELSE 10*RDUNIF('D6.4')  ;
COMPUTE SALESINT/I1 = INT(SALESCST);
COMPUTE SALESMOD/I8 = ((SALESCST) * 100000000) - (SALESINT * 100000000);
COMPUTE SALESVAL/A24 = EDIT(SALESINT)||','||EDIT(EDIT(SALESMOD),'99');
BY COUNTRY
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
END


DISCLAIMER: This is nothing great. But, if I understand the desireed result, then it'll get the job done.

Thank you Doug for your replay.

I have already thought your solution to concatenate the integer and decimal part. This could solve the problem but it is quit annoying for the client to have a numeric field in a text cell.
Furthermore, I have a lot of numeric fileds in the report that could be less then 1 and I should write more code...

Has someone saved excel file as "FORMAT EXL2K" in a Mainframe environment?
Did you have the same problem that I have?

You're Welcome ac1,

I think that it's a bit annoying as well. But, like I said "It'll get the job done". I normally comment code like this as needing to be redacted and come back to it when time permits. And pass it on as a New Feature Request when possible.

Just for clarification: Your client wants something like ".24435009" to be displayed as "0,24" (zero comma two four) not "0.24"?

Doug, the comma for decimal is Continental Decimal Notation, achieved by

SET CDN=ON

Decimal is comma, thousands separator is dot.

The European way (and Quebec).

Thanks Francis, for the International clarification on this. I needed some clarification on it

Hi Doug,
the client wants to see 0,24435009. The comma is the decimal notation, as Francis said.

Anyway, it is strange that with "FORMAT EXCEL" I get 0,24435009 and with "FORMAT EXL2K" I get ,24435009.

It is strange, and may have something to do with FOCUS for mainframe. Try opening a case with Tech Support.

Ok Francis.
I need to register to open a case, right?
I should ask the code licence to the client?... no so easy

ac1, yes, you need a site code. Perhaps the client has already registered with Tech Support and they have a User ID/Password...
