Applies to:Oracle GoldenGate - Version 188.8.131.52.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
There is a bogus value in column X.
The value is determined to be 99999999999999.
In the source table SQL DDL, the column is defined as
On the target database, the column is defined as an INTEGER datatype.
Large integer values can range from -2,147,483,648 through +2,147,483,647.
When this bogus number (99,999,999,999,999)is (properly) discarded, it
displays in the discard file as:
X = 1E14
Column has an invalid, very large value.
