Thanks for your reply. I did notice that in one instance in the database I
was using Numeric for the same type of field. When I changed it to
Numeric, everything worked fine.

Thanks for helping me get my mind on the right thinking path. And I used

Thanks again. BTW, IBO is a great asset to have and works great.
