The Decimal Fraction feature allows you to sample records throughout the file, from beginning to end, without processing sequential records. To determine the number to type in this 7-byte field, divide the number of records you want to process by the number of records in the file. This will give you a decimal number. Drop the decimal, and type the first 7 digits of the number. For example, you have a file with 102986 records, and you want to process 2000 records. You would divide 2000 by 102986 and get .0194201153. Dropping the decimal, you would type 0194201 in the Decimal Fraction field. This will ensure that the 2000 records processed are evenly distributed throughout the file.
