Have a program where I did a lot of ROUNDing

so I have something like this:


I know... it's LAZY to do it this way... but was just wondering if there is any Keyword that would turn off ROUNDing for a couple of the data elements that I probably don't want rounded ever....

then I could put (e.g.) TRUNCATE in the INCLUDE file to always override ROUNDing

kind of like the asterisk in the compile that the wiki says:

"On/off switch for source code printout. First occurrence turns the listing off, second occurrence turns it back on"

P.S.I believe that in all the other languages I know, the ROUND is an attribute of the operation, as in COBOL: Add A to B Rounded. As is the control for overflow.... COBOL: Add A to B On Size Error..... I must confess that I always have to force myself to remember that MTB's ROUND is attached to the data element.
