I'm reading in a text file using an infix statment. Some of my variables
(the nce variables) occupy 3 columns but have an implied decimal between
the 2nd and 3rd columns. How do I correctly specify this in my infix
statement?

Here's the a snippet of the code I'm using:

infix
  record 1-2
  str studln 3-13
  str studfn 14-22
  str sudmi 23
  str studnum 33-42
<much stuff deleted>
  nce_str1  3450-3452
  nce_str2  3453-3455
  nce_str3  3456-3458
  nce_str4  3459-3461
  nce_str5  3462-3464
  nce_str6  3465-3467
  nce_str7  3468-3470
  nce_str8  3471-3473
  nce_str9  3474-3476
  nce_str10 3477-3479
  nce_str11 3480-3482
  nce_str12 3483-3485
  nce_str13 3486-3488
  nce_str14 3489-3491
  nce_str15 3492-3494
  nce_str16 3495-3497
  nce_str17 3498-3500
  nce_str18 3501-3503
  nce_str19 3504-3506
  nce_str20 3507-3509
  nce_str21 3510-3512
  nce_str22 3513-3515
  nce_str23 3516-3518
  nce_str24 3519-3521
  nce_str25 3522-3524
  nce_str26 3525-3527
  nce_str27 3528-3530
  nce_str28 3531-3533
  nce_str29 3534-3536
  nce_str30 3537-3539
