Thanks Dan & Mos
I have many tables that use float (in production database), if I
convert all of the float column to DOUBLE or DECIMAL (using alter ),
is there any impact or anything I should know that could happen to me
is there any page that describe the differences between FLOAT, DECIMAL
and DOUBLE in MySQL 5.0.* ?
