When I query fields in the database with currency information (numeric, 2 decimals), the query results shows all the fileds without decimal commas.
If the query field result, the values in the db like
21671,00 and 23134,18 become 21671 and 2313418

How can I solve the problem of missing decimal information? when the information in the db as decimals value different from 0, this is not shown and 23.134,18 becomes 2.313.418.

Thanks

The problem was on the settings of the Oracle ODBC Connection string used by MS Access.
The 'NUM' parameter in the ODBC conection string was 'NLS', that I've changet with 'MS'.

After the change on the odbc settings, that you can perform also in the NumericSetting entry of MS registry settings (regedit), I've:
1 rebboted the machine
2 reconnected the database table in the access db

After that, the decimal field was displayed correctly.
You can optimize the format of the field using Set the Format property of the field in the query.


The possible options for the Oracle NUM Connection Parameter field are:
NLS=Use Oracle NLS numeric settings (to determine the decimal and group separator).
MS=Use Microsoft regional settings.
US=Use US settings

The full list of Oracle connection parameter could be found at: https://community.oracle.com/thread/1056197?tstart=0

I was using Access to connect to an Oracle database using ODBC.
