When attempting to extract data form a database table containing DECIMAL(1,0) type columns to a flat file with the OdiSqlUnload tool the data appears to be incorrect.

More specifically, these data types have been converted to a 3 character field rather than the expected 2 (one character for the sign).

For example :

   1COL  01    0
  22COL  022   0
 333COL -1333  0
4444COL  04444 1
       ^- This blank character should not be present.
