Hi all,

We need help in this scenario.

Our backend is mainframe so our data will be binary .So we are using ffd for converting it to xml .suppose we are getting 00000 as a value for a field from backend, it has to be converted to 000.00 through ffd.is there anyway this can be done?

Thanks in advance
Ajay

And yet, this is the DataPower forum.

Now if only there were a clear statement of what 'ffd' was, then perhaps the original poster could get some useful advice.

Although presumably there isn't anything that'd functionally difficult about setting field precision and the location of a decimal point in *any* transformation/modelling interface.

'ffd' refers to (Contivo Analyst) Flat File Descriptor files. It's one of the tools that DataPower supports for transforming binary messages. Non-trivial transforms require additional licensing, but with that comes documentation.
