Why do some columns in a discard file show values in an exponent format rather than showing the actual value? (Doc ID 1468490.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.1.1.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Example:

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

       "X" NUMBER,

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

Changes

 Column has an invalid, very large value.
