Oracle retrieve number Problem RRS feed

  • Question


    I was retrieving a number in oracle. However,when I check the returned value, it have a suffix of M.

    Therefore, If cast the number to double, I would I an exception.

    Say the number is 100, i would get 100M.

    Does anybody know what's going on?

     PS: I am retriving data in dbdatareader and turn it into dataTable -> dataRow[].

            If I do console.writeline(), I would get 100.

           But if I acutally watch the value, and click on it. It would change from 100 to 100M.

            I am using VS2005 with .net 2.0
