Symptoms

Following errors are encountered while importing into 12.1.0.2 database:

ORA-02374: conversion error loading table "AM"."AMEXPENSELINE"
ORA-01722: invalid number
ORA-02372: data for row: MDEBIT : '-~'


The export was taken from a 11.2.0.3 source database.

The import goes fine when imported into 11.2.0.3 database again.

MDEBIT is a column with a FLOAT data type but surprisingly it contains data some thing like '-~' in it.
