Thanks for your reply, Geoff. But I've tried to transfer 1 record only with
no null value at all. Then, I've tried to convert the field to type DECIMAL
in SQL Server before transfer. The task succeeded but decimal places were
lost. I've also tried to convert to type DECIMAL(18,2), i.e. with precision
& scale specified. This time, the task failed with the same error message
"Invalid number". Please help!
