Subj:   Decimal(18,0)
 
From:   Thopay Sudarsan

Hi All,

I insert 3 records (18 positions)

011456789123456789
024210032400070009
033456789123456789


in the column - Acct_Nbr Deciamal(18,0).

sel * form sb_account_mo.tt gives

11,456,789,123,456,788
24,210,032,400,070,008
33,456,789,123,456,788


In otherwords a numeric value of 17 positions or more,inserted in a decimal(18,0) column has the low order digits changed. Why? . Any fix for it.


Thanks in Advance.

Sudarsan Thopay
