Field type for Screen Field

Dear all,

Actually i want to store Numeric Value with '+' or '-' sign in module pool's Screen Field.

how can i store that type of data.

currently i m declared as a decimal type variable.

but when value is coming with negative sign in internal table. dum error is occured like this...............

There was a conversion error in the output of fields to the screen.

The formats of the ABAP output field and the screen field may not match.

Some field types require more space on the screen than in the ABAP

program. For example, a date output field on the screen requires two

more characters than the corresponding field in the ABAP program. When

the date is displayed on the screen, an error occurs resulting in this

error message.

Screen name.............. "ZPPI_SCRAP_RECORD"

Screen number............ 9000

Screen field............. "T_ITAB-DIFF"

Error text............... "FX015: Sign lost."

Other data:

" "

" "

" "

Plz help me

Go to the screen layout and choose the attribute of the field. You should get a popup with all the attributes.

One of them is the input attribute and there you will see a number of underscores, eg. _______

Add a 'v' at the last position. like: _______v or _______V (If i remember correctly V is the placeholder for the sign).
