How many decimals have the variable of the result?

It's like u have a trunk to 2 decimals.

DATA: v_result TYPE P DECIMALS 3.

375,000.00 / 15,000.000 = v_result

Put your code if it doesnÂˇt work

regards

Hello try this

DATA : a(10) TYPE p DECIMALS 2,

b(10) TYPE p DECIMALS 3,

c(10) TYPE p DECIMALS 2.

a = '375000.00'.

b = '15000.000'.

c = a / b .

WRITE: c.

it works properly & gives output as 25.00

Hi vinil,

i do it like this and it works:

data: p1 type p decimals 2 value 375000.

data: p2 type p decimals 3 value 15000.

*

data: r1 type p decimals 2.

*

r1 = p1 / p2. "R1 gets 25,00

*

write: r1.

Can you show the declaration of your fields.
