Xfr400CompatibleFDFFile Property

Attachmate.Reflection.Objects.Emulation.IbmHosts Library > FileTransfer Object : Xfr400CompatibleFDFFile Property |

Gets or sets whether Reflection denotes a number's digit/decimal characteristics in file description files in the same style as RUMBA.

Syntax

`Object.Xfr400CompatibleFDFFile As Boolean`

Remarks

By default, Reflection counts the implied positive or negative sign and any decimal point when denoting the digit/decimal characteristics of a number. For example, Reflection denotes 123.45 as 7/2 (that is, seven total digits, two of which fall to the right of the decimal point).

The implied positive or negative sign represents the first digit, the numbers 123 represent the next three digits, the decimal point represents another digit, and the two numbers on the right of the decimal point (45) represent the last two digits. RUMBA denotes the same number (123.45) as 5/2 (that is, five total digits, two of which fall to the right of the decimal point).
