Formatting Numeric Columns

Formatting Numeric Columns

When you edit flat file definitions, you can define formats for numeric values with the Number datatype. Bigint, double, and integer datatypes have a default precision, scale, and format. You can change the precision for a column that is an integer or double datatype.
Use the Format column on the Columns tab of a flat file source or target definition to define the format for numeric values.
You can define the following formatting options for numeric values in the Column Format Settings dialog box:
  • Numeric data
  • Field width
When you define formatting options in the Column Format Settings dialog box, the Designer shows the options you define in the Format column on the Columns tab.
