Hi Experts,

I have been in the process or converting over my code from Delphi 2007 to Delphi 2009.

I have found my source is having an issue with decimal fields in SQL Server, in Delphi 2007 they had a datatype of ftBCD and i believe all previous versions also.

Now when i open my source in Delphi 2009, i get an error saying the "argument is of the wrong type" and i pinpointed it to the ftBCD datatype.

I then did a search and replace to change the datatypes to ftFMTBCD but now when i check the parameters in my query its coming up as "ftUnknown"

So for a decimal datatype what do i change the datatype to in Delphi?

Thank you in advance.
