I am running a fast export to generate a datafile. I am doing a SUM in the field. The field is defined as decimal(9,4) in the table and is nullable.
My fast export is given below. I am passing each record as a character field to avoid any unwanted binary data as a part of my record.
SELECT Sum(zeroifnull(field1)) (CHAR(20)) FROM Table1 WHERE field2 = '123' Group By field3;
The problem is: it is generating the answer set something like below. I am expecting a number instead of the asterisks ********. Please advice.
*********** 125.0000 327.5000 3239.5000 255.0000 64033.0000 10.0000 ***********
I have tried casting to a character field but it changes the result to:
1.85460621446000E 007 1.25000000000000E 002 3.27500000000000E 002 3.23950000000000E 003 2.55000000000000E 002 6.40330000000000E 004 1.00000000000000E 001 1.58390321284000E 008
I will really appreciate any help to fix this issue.....
