I am having trouble using NORM 2.03 for multiple imputation.

When the program creates imputation files, those variables that originally had decimals have lost them, and I cannot figure out why.

I ask the program to impute data with decimals in those variables that have decimals in the original data file. And when the program creates the imputation files, the imputed missing values show six decimals (as I asked), but the original non-missing values have lost their decimals (they now just show the period followed by zeros).

Here goes an example:

Original data:

4.325378

5.034826

-999

2.629572

-999

...

Imputed data:

4.000000

5.000000

3.532869

2.000000

7.592141

...

Does anybody now what is the reason for this and how to solve it?

Thanks all in advance.
