Data Transformation problem with bfloat exporting form SQL

Data Transformation problem with bfloat exporting form SQL

Data Transformation problem with bfloat exporting form SQL

Using Pervasive SQL 2000 engine I imported some data via command line using the dts package shipped with SQL Server 2000. Have to do this, my solution is a vb batch job. The problem is a field called unit cost which is bfloat/double in pervasive and real in SQL Server. The data is valid from Pervasive to SQL Server but quantities below 1.0 are chopped to zero on export back to pervasive. Now I know that the information is in pervasive because the DTSDestination("UnitCost") field in the DTS Utility confirms this. Also after playing around with the conversion utility of 2000I Server I accidentally got the right figures that were to be transfered instead of zeros into the Pervasive table. The thing is I cannot get it to work again. I have tried scanning for NULL and converting but I keep getting a new .mkd file and loosing reference to my original table in the DDFs. I guess now is the time to cry help! So please help ANYONE. Its urgent!
