I am running SQL-2000, I have a table that one field ddefined as char. The data is actually Dollar values(no $ signs just 99.25 for example). I need to convert this column from char to Numeric. I am trying to use Enterprise manager to redesign the table but I get "error converting data type VARCHAR to numeric". Enterprise manager shows the field as CHAR. I have no Idea why that error is comming up. I would like any info that could help me with this conversion. Thanks in advance.
