Oracle needs good Oracle programmers.  Or maybe they are using Mysql.  LOL...

Well, it would depend on how the column was created… perhaps they
used number(1000000,1) ^_^

Just curious if any of you guys have ever
noted discrepancies in the billing amounts on the invoices Oracle sends your

We had an
itemized invoice from Oracle and one of our managers actually added every line
item and discovered that the "TOTAL" amount that Oracle calculated
was different than the individual line item amounts.  The difference was
only a penny or two difference.  Now we get to hear all kinds of
"Oracle Math" jokes around the office.
