Action

This option sets the character used for the decimal point for singles and fusing.

 

 

Syntax

CONFIG DP= "dp"

 

 

Remarks

The decimal point is a dot (.) by default. The STR() and FUSING functions convert a single into a string. The fraction is separated by a dot. In a number of counties the comma is used as a separator.

 

Old Syntax:

Valid options are : CONFIG DP = "."  and CONFIG DP = ","

 

New preferred Syntax:

Valid options are : CONFIG DP = DOT  and CONFIG DP = COMMA

 

This options only sets the character for str() and fusing for singles. In your code you still need to code with a dot :  var = 1234.333
