Differences between decimal and numeric types


  • Hi,

    does it exist any differences between decimal type and numeric type?

    When using decimal type? When using numeric type?

    In SQL Server, they are exactly the same.  So there is no reason to pick one over the other.  Just pick one and use it as the standard in your site.  (Based on 20 years of experience with SQL Server.)
