Retrieve numeric data from Oracle table

Hi,
a simple question if you had experience this before. How to retrieve a numeric data from a table in Oracle's  from SQL?

Actually, I want to insert a data into a table in SQL db but the data I pull from Oracle table. I manage to get the varchar2 and date column type data from Oracle, but when it comes to number, it give me this error message.

"Server: Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
OLE DB provider 'MSDASQL' reported an error. The provider did not give any information about the error.
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'MSDASQL' IRowset::GetNextRows returned 0x80004005:  The provider did not give any information about the error.]."

This is a sample of my simple select statement that produce the above error:

select chartid from NEWEIS..EISADMIN.tbl_chart

****note : chartid is number(4)

all oracle numbers are basically floats ...

what data type is sql server assuming?

then converting that back for SQL server

May be try something like this using openquery.

select * from openquery( LINKED_OLAP,
'select distinct [Customer Location:Country],
[Customer Location:State Province],
[Customer Location:City]
from sales' )

Fyi,
I already try to convert but it didn't help. It seems SQL is having a problem to read the number value in Oracle. BTW, here are the sample:

select chartid from NEWEIS..EISADMIN.tbl_chart

select convert(integer,chartid) from NEWEIS..EISADMIN.tbl_chart

select convert(float,chartid) from NEWEIS..EISADMIN.tbl_chart
