numeric data in 7.3 and 8i

numeric data in 7.3 and 8i

I'm working with a client/server VB app. Our production server is
and our test server is Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release .
Here is my problem. The app works fine off the production server (7). But on
the test server(8), it doesn't.
Here is the code that crashes:
adoRSExample!ExampleField = CDbl(Format(intExample, "####.#"))
It works if there are no decimal places. 43 works but 43.3 crashes.
This field in the database is NUMBER with no size,decimal formatting.

RE: numeric data in 7.3 and 8i

    What is the data type declaration for intExample?  Should it
take a value like 43.3, given its data type?
