    Hi

    If the Field needs to Store amount use CURR.

    If the Field needs to Store Quantities use QUAN.

    Otherwise use Type DEC.

    All these are Equal to Type P.

    Hi,

    Yes there is no data type 'P' in se-11 for data element.

    there two way you can define the D.E

    -one is by define with type 'CURR' and give length and decimal places suppose if you define cust_money as curr length is 12 with in you can give decimal places as 2 or 3 etc a/c your requirement.

    -secon one is you can use the type as 'DEC' and give the legth and decimal places as explained above.

    before creating the data element you can check r they any built in dataelements avialbe suppose for DEC* give in se11 and press F4 then u can find out the list of D.E like there are already some d.E like dec8_2,dec25,DEC11_2 etc...
