Like Roger, I'm totally confused as to what you're really trying to say

Are you saying you're trying to represent the integer and fractional
portion of a value as the integer value of each in two separate bit
fields so that the internal storage could be

bit positions 1-15
11111100 0000000
54321098 7654321


where the decimal is an implied one????

If not, try again in complete detail to explain what it is you are
trying to do...
