Numeric Format in Adabas

can i define decimal format or date format in Adabas?

In Natural i have:
Decimal = P12.2

But in Adabas can i do this?

D fields map to P7, where did you get P12.2 from ?


In Natural i have numeric-decimal P12.2 or N12.2 for example SALARY … 12500.00

for Adabas
how do numeric with decimal format?

You only define the format (P or U) and the byte length (e.g. P12.2 = 8 bytes) in the FDT,
the mapping / interpretation is done by the application (e.g. Natural)
