I am currently trying to get some latitude and longitude data to import into a database using the data import wizard in mysql workbench. the problem is that the floating point values that get imported are modified by mysql workbench, or whatever query it's preforming, so they are useless. Example:
40.8152 turns into 40.0000.
I cannot figure out why this is happening. I have the columns set to DECIMAL(6,4), but they still get modified when imported.
Anybody have any ideas as to what might be causing this and how i can get these to import correctly?
I have also tried FLOAT, FLOAT(6,4), DOUBLE and DOUBLE(6,4) with the same results. It either removes the trailing decimal values completely or sets them to 0.
