2020202.020202 - Initialization Value?

2020202.020202 - Initialization Value?

(OP)
I am starting to use Standard Cost Distribution for more detailed information concerning our shop floor order variances.  However, I see a $.02 Labor Rate Variance distribution when there should be none.  When I access the Macola database using MS Access, I see a value in the "Dist_Hrs" and "Lbr_Rate" fields of 2020202.020202 which I believe might be leading to this erroneous $.02 distribution.  Can somebody please help me understand why this 2020202.020202 value is there and what I can do to correct this?

RE: 2020202.020202 - Initialization Value?

This would probably better be asked in a Macola forum as Pervasive.SQL (used by Macola) is only the database engine and only stores what it is told to store by the application.
That being said, a field with 2020202.020202 almost looks like a hex numeric repesentatation of a string field (hex 20 being the string equivalent of a space).  My best guess is that somehow a string value of all spaces was inadvertantly inserted into this field and ODBC is trying to interpret it.
