Where are the rules defined for converting between types of data? I used PUT EDIT to display the contents of two variables declared as FIXED DEC(10. 2) and FIXED DEC(7,3), but I had them output as Binary values. The first value was printed as 27 bits, and the second one as 14 bits. The binary values are correct (after truncation of the fractional portion of the value), but I have no idea why the lengths are 27 and 14. Thanks.
