How to Create a Decimal-Type Command Parameter in ASP

Hi friends,

Can someone show me the right way to create decimal-type command parameterin ASP?  My code below give me a "precision is invalid" error.

Dim cmdClaimInsertUpdate
Set cmdClaimInsertUpdate = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
With cmdClaimInsertUpdate
      .ActiveConnection = cn
      .CommandText = "sp_ClaimInsertUpdate"
      .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
      .Parameters.Append = .CreateParameter("@Claim_RepairLaborRate", adDecimal, adParamInput,  , Request.Form("txtClaimRepairLaborRate"))
End With
Set cmdClaimInsertUpdate = Nothing

In the sp_ClaimInsertUpdate stored procedure, I have the following declaration...

@Claim_RepairLaborRate      DECIMAL(18,2)      = NULL,

The field name Claim_RepairLaborRate is a decimal type with 18 precision and 2 scale.

Any help on this matter would be so greatly appreciated.

Thanks a bundle,

Jazon from Jacksonville, FL

Actually, the following line solved my problem.

.Parameters("@Claim_RepairLaborRate").Precision = 18

Thank you for your response.
yes, but Decimal is 14 not 18

What database are you using?  Mine is 18 by default.
