Initial Programming Considerations : Data types : Oracle Number data

Oracle Number data

Consider the local version of the Oracle database when accessing NUMBER data. The internal radix (decimal point symbol) varies among versions. For example, some European versions expect the radix to be a comma (,) rather than a period (.). The DataServer issues an ALTER SESSION SET SEPARATOR statement, which might result in stored procedures that you call from ABL seeing a different radix separator.
