I am inporting a CSV file into SQL Server using the import/export wizard. The data in the CSV file looks like this:
All these values are dollar amounts. Since this is packaged finance software (JD Edwards 9.2 to be more precise), I have to live with the data type for all columns being FLOAT and no, I can't change it.
After importing using the wizard, the table has
164051 respectively in those columns.
When running the pre-packaged JDE finance report, it contains
1640.51 as the values, i.e. it interprets the last two digits as "cents" and there is nothing I can do about it. Not a problem if the value is
