This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 005010X222. The note on SVD05 states: "The maximum length for this field is 8 digits excluding the decimal. When a decimal is used, the maximum number of digits allowed to the right of the decimal is three."
Therefore, the following values are valid format extremes: 12345678 1234567.8 123456.78 12345.678 The total number of digits can not exceed 8. The total number of digits to the right of the decimal point can not exceed 3. The decimal point character is not counted as a digit. |
