Symptoms


We have a requirement to charge the GPRS usage for 1GB of Data and with a beat of 100KB each.
While defining the pricemodel in pricing center for the same, charge base takes only 9 digits but 1GB converted to bytes becomes 1073741824 which is 10digits.
Also, when we tried it from backend in the ifw_pricemdl_step table, it gave an error, because of the restriction on the column size is 9 from charge_base.

So we are not able to define such pricing structure.
Is it we cannot define such scheme in the system and if not, is there can be any workaround for the same.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
