Mssqlclient returns nil for money, decimal, numeric fields


#1

Only real and float field types return values as they should.

Since I haven’t found nothing on the subject on net I wonder if it’s
only me.

The mssqlclient works well enough for a demo at this point, but is not
fit for production. You should check out the source (http://
rubyforge.org/scm/?group_id=2344) and fix the bugs before you stick it
into a live site. I do know that it passed more tests than the built-
in MSSql adapter, so it’s a little odd that it wont return decimals
back to you properly. When this was written it was used on a site
that dealt with a lot of currency values, so there might be something
else going on.

I am using last rails (1.2.2), ruby 1.8.5.

Browsing source won’t do no good because I don’t C.
