Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to v3.2.4 ecommerce custom fields functionality broken

DON'T USE FLOAT!  These need to be exact numbers.

Use numeric rather than number.  I think they use something like number(9,2) which can be directly translated into numeric(9,2).

Numeric is the SQL92 exact fixed-point arithmetic type.  Oracle supports both names but for some reason aD uses number exclusively (probably because of its prominence in the Oracle docs).
