I have floating-point numbers in file, one in each line, in this format S9(6)V9(2) but when they are actually read, I'm getting "non numeric" errors while trying to put them in math operations. What is more, when I try to display them in program, a number that is written in file as 567123.45 is saved in variable as +567123.04. And for example the number from file 123.45 is saved in variable as +123.45.00 and it provokes the following error 'WS-VALUE' not numeric: '123.45 0' during a math operation. Why is that?
I'm using OpenCobolIDE 4.7.4 for Windows.
05 WS-ID PIC A(2).
05 WS-CLIENT PIC 9(5).
05 WS-COUNTRY PIC A(4).
05 WS-VALUE PIC S9(6)V9(2).
