  • Hi,

        The data type you are asking is called Nn data type where n is variable.

    Nn data type means that decimal will be at nth position in the numeric data after n digits from right side.

    For example if data type is N2 and in edi it is 34567 then in xml it will be represented as 345.67.

     

    In your case it is not a valid value because it is N0 data type and value is 101.001. It can be N3 data type.

     

     

    Thanks
