Template is a literal or variable string using the following formatting characters:


  & Prints an entire string value. Length should be limited as template width will vary.
  \ Denotes the start and end point of a fixed string area with spaces between(LEN = spaces + 2).
  ! Prints only the leading character of a string value.
  # Denotes a numerical digit. An appropriate number of digits should be used for values received.
^^^^ Prints a numerical value in exponential format.
  . Period sets a number's decimal point position. Digits following determine value accuracy.
  , Comma to left of decimal point, prints a comma every 3 places left of the decimal point.
  + Denotes position of the number's sign.
  - Placed after the number, displays the number's sign after the number (negative only).
  $$ Prints a dollar sign immediately before the highest non-zero digit position of the numerical value.
  ** Prints an asterisk in any leading empty spaces of a numerical value. Specifies 2 extra digit positions.
 **$ Combines ** and $. Negative values will display minus sign to left of $.
 _ Underscore preceding a symbol prints format symbols as literal string characters.
Note: Any string character not listed above will be printed as a literal character.
