# E-Notation

E-Notation gives you the ability to process and build decimal numbers expressed as E-Notation.

This is the common way to represent data that looks like the following:

"1.314E1" (value is 13.14)

or like this:

"-7.001e -2" (value is -.07001).

In E-Notation, a literal "E" is used to separate the coefficient from the exponent (coefficient E
exponent).

Note: The data described in this documentation is "E-Notation data", and should not be
confused with Scientific, or exponential notation.
