Receiving error when querying Oracle DB from SQL Server 2005

When I run the query below, I receive an error stating that Invalid Data for type numeric.  The query is being executed from SQL 2005 against a linked server to an Oracle DB.  If I select just the first record, it returns without issue.  However, when I run it against the entire dataset, I get the error.  From what I've read, this can occur if an integer is stored in a numeric field.  How can I get around this?  I'm not familiar with PLSQL.

Check that the these columns are not NUMERIC, they are being nvl-ed or compared to CHAR types

and b.actual_flag = ''A''
and nvl(b.translated_flag,''USD'') = ''USD''
and g.segment5 between ''30000'' AND ''99999'' --Income Statement Accounts

This problem seems to be caused by the 64 bit oracle driver. Pretty sure it's okay on 32 bit, but I'm struggling with this in a 64 bit world. Also, this only seems to occur with numeric values that end with a zero. I'm gonna upgrade the driver from Version 10.2 to 11.1 next week to see if the problem has been solved.
