V6-FSP-0331 *** ALERT NOTE *** PRODUCT: FSP
                                                        PROCEDURE: FSP

TITLE: A numeric value too large for its format may display as missing (.)

KEYS: FSEDIT FSVIEW NUMERIC VALUE TOO LARGE FORMAT MISSING DOT INCORRECT
       INVALID WIDTH SPECIFIED OUT OF RANGE

    A numeric value that is too large to fit the format specified may
    display as a dot which makes it incorrectly appear to be a missing
    value. When this happens with the FSEDIT procedure, you will receive
    the following error message on the message line for the offending
    observation:

      ERROR: Invalid value for width specified - width out of range.

    With the FSVIEW procedure, no error message is given.

    To circumvent the problem, increase the width of the format so all
    values will display.
