On page 43 at the bottom of the page is this paragraph:
The formatting of table types often requires adjustment. Usually the fields have been predefined as text fields with a very large size. Numeric and date fields should therefore be reset using *Type **formatting****> **Column information **> **Field type*. In the case of decimal numbers, you will need to check the number of decimal places.I have no idea what this means. What part of Base has been opened that would have this menu path?
