Subj:   Re: Is it possible to modify table?
From:   Chuck McDevitt

This can't be right:

  "This we modify the table header definition automatically and is very quick since it does not rewrite existing rows...."  

because decimal(15,2) and decimal(18,6) have a different scale.

To do the conversion, every row would have to be re-written so that the data was shifted 4 dec digits.

If the scale stayed the same, you could do it with just a table header and catalog change.
