I having a strange problem. <BR>I have a decimal(5,2) column in a SQL database. When I select the data into ASP I get the right data (let's say 8.5) but ASP won't recognize it as numeric. <BR><BR>If I use ISNUMERIC it returns false. <BR>If I try to multiply it by 1 then I get a Type mismatch. Why would this happen and how do I fix it ?
