OK we have a better understanding of the issue now. The thing that's really throwing it off is the editmask. It's longer than the expected length required for input of the number. To input a 9.4 number you need a max of 11 characters: 9 plus 1 for the decimal point and 1 for the sign. The editmask uses more characters than that because of the commas so Comet makes the entry field longer than the actual field. Since the field is right justified, the truncation is cutting off the right most digits (in this case just the sign).
We haven't decided the best way to deal with this yet. You can get an immediate solution by removing the editmask from the FORMAT. We don't understand why you have an editmask in an INPUT format anyway. Editmasks are for output.
Joe, is there an editmask in your input FORMAT also?
