RPGILE instruction to truncate

With the following RPGILE instruction I receive the message: The target for a numeric operation is too small to hold the result (RNQ0103). When the result contains too many digits for the receiving field. Eval(RH) Result = Amount / Divider. I thought that option (R) in eval could handle the truncation, but not at all. Is there a way to allow this truncation?

Sometimes, old ways work best:

 FMT C   CL0N01Factor1+++++++Opcode&ExtFactor2+++++++Result++++++++
0070.01 C     Amount        Div(h)    Divider       Result
