You can add in the TIB_Connection (or TIBODatabase) ColumnAttributes
property the NOBCD attribute which will cause it to use the float field
instead of the BCD field.

Also, feel free to go into the source and look for 'NOBCD' in the IBODataset
(IBDataset) unit and change the code to avoid using BCD all together.

Why are BCD columns so awful to deal with?
Why are they so hard to get working?
Seems there is still a bug in them when accessing their value as a float.
Were you getting an "out of range" error by chance?
