Goal

For Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management (ALM) 5.6, can you increase the size of the EXCHANGE_RATE column on FSI_EXCHANGE_RATE_HIST and FSI_EXCHNG_RATE_DIRECT_ACCESS to hold a rate that has 7 digits before the decimal?

The current definition for EXCHANGE_RATE (NUMBER 15,9) only allows 6 digits before the decimal.  For certain currencies, the exchange rate for Gold and Silver needs to have a larger column.  (For example: 1 XAU = 2599288.12 LBP)
