In case we need to store some decimal numbers(such as 'amount') in the associative array,can we declare the associative array this way....

TYPE loan_table IS TABLE OF NUMBER(13,2) INDEX BY binary_integer;
a_num_loan loan_table;


please reply. Thank you.
Why don't you try it out?

SQL> set serverout on
SQL> DECLARE
  2    TYPE my_table_type IS TABLE OF NUMBER(12,3) INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;
  3    my_table my_table_type;
  4  BEGIN
  5    my_table(5) := 123.5;
  6    dbms_output.put_line(to_char(my_table(5)));
  7  END;
  8  /
123.5

OP, you can do this only once.
You did it, DON'T TRY IT AGAIN AND POST YOUR QUESTION IN FORUMS.

yep, me too...

Makes you wonder. I'd say it takes less time to post one question then to pm the top-n (..., I won't say anything).
