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

Last updated on JUNE 25, 2018

Hyperion Data Relationship Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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.
