In my report, i am printing values for production with the format "P20.2C"...
I get the out put with two decimals and coma seperated...example :
23.20
23,000.13
20,000.00

The requirement asks decimals only if there is demimal values like ".02" or ".16"...
other wise just the values without ".00"....

Multiple examples of this on the forum. Try searching for "dynamic format."

This might help:

DEFINE FILE CAR
TOT_SALES/P20.2 = SALES * 1.272;
FMT_SALES/A8 = IF INT(TOT_SALES) EQ TOT_SALES THEN 'P20C' ELSE 'P20.2C';
END
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT TOT_SALES AS 'Actual,Value'
      TOT_SALES/FMT_SALES AS 'Formatted,Value'
BY COUNTRY AS 'Country'
BY CAR     AS 'Car'
END

You're too kind. I was letting the user figure out a little bit for themselves - having to expend a little effort helps them remember it better the next time.

I prefer the version I posted a while back.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat well for a day, give him a boat and fishing rod and he'll sit in the boat all day drinking beer. Wink
