The SODBC_USEFORMAT environment variable instructs dbcreate to generate implied‑decimal system catalog columns from repository fields with format strings that include decimal points.
If your repository has a field that is not an implied decimal but that has a format string with a decimal point, you can instruct dbcreate to use the decimal information in the format string to create an implied‑decimal column in the system catalog. To do this, set the SODBC_USEFORMAT environment variable to 1 before generating the system catalog. For example, if SODBC_USEFORMAT is set to 1 and your repository has a d5 field with an XXX.XX format string, the field will appear as a d5.2 column in the system catalog.
