I have lines in a csv like these:

07/09/2002,'ORDER POSTING',-5,'TMT',0.463,10.8,0
01/06/2003,'ORDER POSTING',75.76,'C',-2.4524,37.4,15.96
--'Date','Description','Amount','Symbol','Quantity','Price','Commission'

The quantity column is negative for a withdrawal (sell stocks), positive otherwise.  I have no other way with this data set to see if withdrawal/deposit.  any hope of a signed decimal datatype for this?  There is too much precision for "money" datatype.  I am using pgsql

muchas gracias,

joe
