SET POINT Command

Determines the decimal point character used in the display of numeric and currency expressions.


SET POINT TO [cDecimalPointCharacter]

Parameters

cDecimalPointCharacter

Specifies the character for the decimal point.

Use SET POINT to change the decimal point from the default, which is a period (.). Issue SET POINT TO without cDecimalPointCharacter to reset the decimal point to a period. Although you can set the displayed decimal point to a different character, you must use a period as the decimal point in calculations.

SET POINT is scoped to the current data session.

gnX = 1.25
gcNewPoint = '_'
SET POINT TO gcNewPoint 
? gnX
SET POINT TO      && Reset the decimal point to a period (.)
? gnX
