Simple routine to convert exponential values to float
I was trying to get values in an ALV grid recently and I noticed that the values are displayed as exponential values which didn’t satisfy the client very much. So after a little research I found this function module that converted the exponential format to float format.
This form takes the exponential value in V_FLOAT variable converts it to the float value in V_CHAR P10_4 variable
FORM CONVERT CHANGING V_FLOAT V_CHAR P10_4.
IF V_FLOAT IS NOT INITIAL.
CALL FUNCTION ‘CEVA_CONVERT_FLOAT_TO_CHAR’
FLOAT_IMP = V_FLOAT
FORMAT_IMP = P10_4
ROUND_IMP = ‘ ‘
CHAR_EXP = V_CHAR.
DATA: V_FLOAT TYPE F , V_CHAR(25), P10_41(10) TYPE P DECIMALS 3. “CONVERSION OF STRING TO FLOAT STRUCTURE.
V_FLOAT = VALUE_BEFORE_CONVERSION.
PERFORM CONVERT CHANGING V_FLOAT V_CHAR P10_41.
VALUE_AFTER_CONVERSION = V_CHAR.
Hope this simple routine is useful.
