DataSources on O db: Packed numbers should have an odd number of digits:

Good day again.

Thanks for all your assistance so far, but here is another question.

I am creating a DB Connect Datasource in the Workbench. My problem lies with a data type field DEC with field length = 10 and decimal = 2. When I check the datasource, the following message is displayed:

Field RETAIL_PRICE (Position 4) has 10 characters. This could cause conversion problems. Packed numbers should have an odd number of digits

The proposal is to * increase the lenth with 1 digit*. The db programmer said that he do not want to change the digits to 11.

Is there anything that I can do in BW to rectify this? (Accepting the 10 digit?)

Thanks again
