number defined being truncated in select (sorry double posting ;-( )

We have a customer that is encountering a strange situation.

He has found that if he has a column defined in the DB as a number it only
diplays within the first 7 digits. However if he have the same data in a
column defined as number(9) there is not problem.

table tmp_customer (custid1 number(9), custid2 number) values
(123456789,1234 56789)
when he selects this data using a ORACLE 9 driver in the connection setup he

123456789 1234567

He has tried this same scenario against and ORACLE 8 DB and have no problem

Any suggestion on that one ?

I have been reading the documentation and it is clearly stated that it is up
to 38 digit so I guess 7 would be OK.

I do not know if there is any setting that can affect that ?

Hey everybody. I need help on this one. I need to verify that a number entered by a user is not either a negative number (-100.00), or an alphabet (a, b, c, X, Y) as well as other number other than positive integers or a decimal point. For example: Enter amount: and was capturing the float varialbe as in: scanf ("%f", &myVar)

I've designed a method in the class called Blopp. class Blopp { void foo (int a = 3, double b = 3.6) {} } ; The problem is only that when i call the method, the value of b seems to be truncated, if one believes the (un?) helpful IDE that pops out an info-note. On it, the value has been clearly lowered to 3.0! I went debugger on it and...
