what's the format are you using for this field?

maybe if you use PIC S99V it works.

Please do not post attachments - they take up too much space. Simply cut and paste your screen shot and use the code tags to preserve spacing.
What didn't work - please show what you tried and what you got and how it differs from what you want. Simply saying "it does not work" is useless. We know whatever it is that you tried did not work - otherwise you would not be posting.

Remember that a V in your picture specification is an implied decimal point. If you want to actually see the decimal point tyhen you have to specify a real one : 9.9 not 9V9.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Nic

You should define this field as 99.9 instead of 99V9

and please do remember that dot will take extra byte.
i.e
99v9 ----->will take 3 bytes
99.9------>will take 4 bytes


Thanks
