'Expected type is Decimal' exporting floating point number to Oracle. Number in standard notation. (Doc ID 2027296.1)

Since upgrading to DRM, very small floating point values are exported in standard notation, e.g. 2.7489E-06, which Oracle cannot accept as input to a Number column in a database table. What can we do about this?

The error that stops the export is:
The server returned an error processing the action:
CloseExportJob. Error message: DRM-23081: Export was unable
to run due to the following error: Input string was not in a
correct format. Couldn't store '2.7489E-06' in VALUE Column.
Expected type is Decimal.
