FUSING returns a formatted string of a single value.




target = FUSING(source, "mask")





The string that is assigned with the formatted string.


The source variable of the type SINGLE that will be converted


The mask for formatting the string.


The mask is a string constant that always must start with #.

After the decimal point you can provide the number of digits you want the string to have:

#.### will give a result like 123.456. Rounding is used when you use the # sign. So 123.4567 will be converted into 123.457


When no rounding must be performed, you can use the & sign instead of the # sign. But only after the DP.

#.&&& will result in 123.456 when the single has the value 123.4567


When the single is zero, 0.0 will be returned, no matter how the mask is set up.
