RN API

RN: Round a Number (New)

This API call will allow the programmer to pass a numeric value in SCREEN-NUMERIC-FIELD. This field will be rounded based on the type or number of decimals provided and the results will be passed back in SCREEN-NUMERIC FIELD.

Screen Parameters: RN,t

t = T indicates this input field is a quantity field. The number of decimal places for the entry is determined based on the COMPANY-NO-OF-DECIMALS in the Company file.

t = M indicates this input field is an accumulator field. The number of decimal places for the entry is determined based on the COMPANY-NO-OF-DECIMALS-ACCUM in the Company file.

t = C indicates this input field is a cost field. The number of decimal places is determined based on the COMPANY-NO-OF-DECIMALS-COST in the Company file.

t = $ indicates this input field is a price field. The number of decimal places is determined based on the COMPANY-NO-OF-DECIMALS-PRICE in the Company file.

t = 0 through 5 specifies the number of decimals to be rounded to.

NOTE:  Type C for Cost: In versions 7.5 and 8.x of Elliott, there is not a value for Company-No-of-Decimals-Cost. Therefore, we will default to 4 for the number of decimals for a Cost value.

Type $ for Price: In versions 7.5 and 8.x of Elliott, there is not a value for Company-No-of-Decimals-Price. Therefore, we will default to 4 for the number of decimals for a Price value, unless the value of WS-NS5-UNIT-PRICE-2-DEC is “Y” – in that case we will use 2 for the number of Price decimals.
