Problem Writing to SQL

I am having difficulties writing to a SQL database.  The field I am having problems with is a decimal format.  With a length of 5 characters, a precision of 9 and a scale of 6.  I'm not exactly sure what all of those mean (I didn't create the database), but the error message that I am getting is as follows:  

"Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors.  Check each OLE DB status value, if available.  No work was done."

If I change the data type to varchar in the database, the program runs through fine.

The # it is trying to enter to the database is: 3801.5784

Thanks in advance for the help.

Nevermind, I found that the format I was receiving in wasn't what the database was looking for.  The number needed to be divided by 100.  Thanks.

>a precision of 9 and a scale of 6.
means you have maximum 3 digits before the comma and 6 after. hence 3801 is too big.

change the precision to at least 10 (better 18), and keep the scale of 6.
