Conversion problem

Hi all !

I'm a newbie in ABAP Programming and I have a problem ...

I want to convert a number (delete the '.' from '10.000,00' for example) in this format => 10000,00 ...

I've tried "WRITE ... NO-GROUPING" but it doesn't work ...

Can someone help me please ?

Thanks and sorry for this "bad" question ... :o)

    Hi David,

    You almost got to the answer. Consider the following snippets of code and you'll know how close you were.


    data pack type p decimals 2.

    data char(15) type c.

    pack = '100000.32'.

    • CASE I

    write pack.

    • CASE II

    write / pack no-grouping.

    • CASE III

    write pack to char.

    write / char.

    • CASE IV

    write pack to char no-grouping.

    write / char.

    The outputs will be as follows:






    So, if you just want to write the values to the list, use CASE II. If you want to convert the values as well, use CASE IV. Please note that WRITE...TO statement is used for type conversion, rather than to write a value to the list.

    Hope the explanation has been clear enough.
