The @K picture cannot do what you want. You have to have a local variable, some code to format with a “/”, then show that on the report as a STRING(7)
DayFmt=Sub(DayNo,1,3) &'/'& Sub(DayNo,4,3)
The bellow you can ignore but it’s useful for those reading about @k pictures
I think you want your ENTRY to use @P###/###P because you want to feed it a 6 digit number and have the USE variable get that 6 digit number 123456 without the “/” ?
The @K is designed for Strings and the USE variable will contain all the formatting characters. Your example has a String (6) but would need 7 to hold ‘123/456’. …
Or maybe I misunderstood, that you want ‘DAY/123’, so you need a string of 7 bytes because all the @K formatting is stored.
Key-in pictures are used specifically with STRING, PSTRING, and CSTRING fields to allow custom field editing control and validation. Using a key-in picture containing any of the alphabet indicators ( @ ^ _ ) on a numeric entry field produces unpredictable results.
