lv_test = '1.95583-'.
lv_abc = lv_test * 1000000.

    No, your program should calculate lv_abc = -1955830.


    Your program has not the attribute "fix point arithmetic" (possibly your code is in a program of SAP SD, which is known to not use "fix point arithmetic").

    Please select this program attribute (selected by default), or explain your problem.
