Hi Umer/ Refinitiv team,

Is the *Mantissa* always byte multiple length ? e.g. * 0297AC* is 3 bytes/24 bits, this also represents the same value as

*which is 20 bits. Wanted to confirm.*

**297AC**0x0001, 0x001, 0x01, 0x1 all represent the same number (decimal 1)

Similarly 0xfff1, 0xff1, 0xf1 represent the same number (considering 2's complement, i.e. decimal -15)

Wanted to check whether FID 393, Mantissa component would always be in multiple of bytes.

Regards,

Rohit
