Advantage Data Architect
Bug / Anomaly
Using ARC to Import Numeric Fields from MS SQL Server Fails with Error 5012
Problem Description:
When importing data from an MS SQL Server database using the Advantage Data Architect (ARC) the import may fail with a 5012 (AE_INVALID_FIELDDEF) error if the table contains a NUMERIC column.
This is a bug in the Advantage Data Architect 11.1 and earlier. It is planed to be addressed in the next update.

As a workaround, if possible, alter the table from NUMERIC to another appropriately typed column in the MS SQL Server database. Once imported, the column can be altered back to a NUMERIC in Advantage.
