    I want to create a new question (óne of those questions with a green cross,
    "query di accodamento" in Italian") to be able to merge some dat from two
    different tables. This works fine as long as I do not want to merge the field
    called "colli". Then Access tells me (In italian so I try to translate) "The
    precision in the decimal field is to small to be able to accept the numerous
    value you tried to add"

    What do I have to do to continue?

    Increase its precision?

    To recreate the problem:

    CREATE TABLE Test1 (
    dec_col DECIMAL(4, 2) NOT NULL
    );

    INSERT INTO Test1 (dec_col)
    VALUES (100);

    -- fails with the error, 'The decimal field's precision is too small to
    accept the numeric you attempted to add.'

    With a scale of 2, the precision would have to be at least 5 to
    accommodate the value 100 i.e. alter to DECIMAL(5, 2).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
