PDw.d |
specifies the power of 10 by which to divide the input value. This argument is optional. If you specify d, the PDw.d informat divides the input value by the 10^{d} value. If the data contains decimal points, then SAS ignores the d value.

Under OpenVMS, the least significant 4 bits of the least significant byte in the PD value are interpreted as follows:
If the hexadecimal number in the 4 bits is D or F, then the value is interpreted as negative.
If the hexadecimal number in the 4 bits is C, then the value is interpreted as positive.
The PDw.d format writes missing numerical data as -0. When the PDw.d informat reads -0, it stores it as 0.
