Change in Decimal Type in Different levels

We have a Column in our YF view Called �AC_TONNAGE� and its Data type is Decimal as shown below

and its showing in Yellowfin view 1st level and when we drag this column in 2nd level of our view, its Reading as integer,

Forum image

is there any particular reason why Yellowfin is Reading it as integer? Even though it�s Data type is decimal.

Kindly help us if we are missing any settings.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Prateek,

Thanks for the question. This is indeed odd because when I test this with (MS SQL Server) my decimal data type comes through as a decimal:

I'm wondering, could you let us know which database and version/build of Yellowfin you are using? To check the build of Yellowfin you are using go to System Information under Administration > Admin Console > System Information. �The version of Yellowfin is listed next to Application Version.

I'd like to investigate this further using your environment details to see if I can replicate what you are experiencing.

Please let us know when you find a moment. I look forward to hearing back.

Kind Regards,
