Subj:   38 position NUMERIC field?
 
From:   Anomy Anom

<-- Anonymously Posted: Monday, October 08, 2001 13:29 ->

We are receiving a file where the data is pulled out of Oracle. Apparently Oracle has the data defined as NUMERIC(38) and the field in the file is populated like this '00000000000000000000000000000000012345'.

I defined the field as char(38) in Teradata but the zeroes are populated and this is the PI of the table. I tried to CAST it to INTEGER and FLOAT in the view, but when I select from the view I receive error 2621: Bad character in format or data of [refers me to table].

Any suggestions on how to get this data into Teradata with the leading zeroes displayed as blanks?


Thanks.
