I am using ADO OLE DB connection for getting connected to AS/400. I hav Client accessV3R2M0 + SF57002service pack. I used datagrid (Ole db 6) basic VB control. But I am not able to fill the columns of datagrid with Numeric fields in my DB2 database table. All Numeric fields appear as 0. Can anyone help me? Also when i use "Select * from table" it is taking too much time but when I use "Select empcode,empname,bdate(i.e.all fields) the data retrieval is faster. Why?
