Hi<BR><BR>I am encountering a strange problem when returning number(38) fields from an Oracle 8.1.5 DB to a VB 6 app using ADO 2.5 in conjunction with the Oracle ODBC Driver v 8.1.5 - all values come back as zeros. If I use the Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle this problem disappears. Any thoughts on this?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Howard
