Symptoms

Using Reverse Engineering for existing Oracle tables to ODI Models.

When a table is reversed  which contains number data type columns, ODI sets logical length to 0 and precision to -127 for NUMBER datatypes without explicit length and scale values.

Example: if column data type is NUMBER(22) or NUMBER(18,2), then length and scale values are fine.

But for the columns which data type is defined like NUMBER, reverse engineering gets logical length = 0 and scale = -127 values set.
