Currency Data Type

See AlsoUFKLV9

Currency variables are stored as 64-bit numbers (8 bytes) in a two's complement187U4DO integer format, and are scaled by 10,000 to give a fixed-point number with 15 digits to the left of the decimal point and 4 digits to the right.  This representation provides a range of -922,337,203,685,477.5808 to 922,337,203,685,477.5807.  The type-declaration character4TVC9NP for a Currency variable is @ (ANSI5221FB character 64).

The Currency data type3GYXY7 is useful for calculations involving money and for fixed-point calculations in which accuracy is particularly important.
