Leading Sign to the Left

The leading sign is normally displayed to the right of a numeric value, except in the case of a floating point number. This option enables you to specify that the leading sign should be placed to the left of the number.

Syntax

&symbol(<)&

&ITCDP-TDULPOS& -> 100.00-
&ITCDP-TDULPOS(<)& -> -100.00

The SET SIGN LEFT control command specifies that all subsequent symbols with a numeric value should have a left-justified leading sign. If you use this control command, you must no longer repeat the < option for each individual symbol.
