Using Infomaker 5.0.03 to build reports using MS SQL Server 6.5 on Win95. A
column defined as real on the SQL server displays both negative and positive
numbers correctly in the development mode. When an exe is created, the
negative numbers are all displayed as positive numbers.

The exe and the development is on the same machine. The problem appears to
be only with "real" numbers and not with "float" and "integers".

Will appreciate any help or ideas.

Thanks.
SP

Are you using editmask/raw data display and is this ODBC or MSS (I tried
MSS in 5.0.03 and 5.0.04 with no problem) retrieving from MS SQL Server
6.5
