Hi!

I noticed that by Sergiu Neamt's suggestion, you are using the number_format PHP function in the setInt mehtod of the Record class. The initial idea is good, however, this will leave a thousand separator (",")in the number, thus it will be written to the dbf table incorrectly. I suggest the following change:

Instead of:
$this->forceSetString($columnObj,number_format($value, $columnObj->decimalCount);

Try this:
$value = number_format($value, $columnObj->decimalCount);
$value = str_replace(",", "", $value);
this->forceSetString($columnObj, $value);

Best regards,
4P

Hi I had the same problem
solution which works for me:

The "float" column was defined as "numeric" (try to check col headers from test.php)
Numeric fields are read as INT

find function getInt($columnObj) //line 170 Record.class.php
change line:
return intval($s); //175
to
return floatval($s);

I had some problems with writing numbers under 999 to the DBF file.
Tried your suggestion, replaced this line:
$this->forceSetString($columnObj,number_format($value, $columnObj->decimalCount));

...to this:

$value = number_format($value, $columnObj->decimalCount);
$value = str_replace(",", "", $value);
$this->forceSetString($columnObj, $value);

(that's your idea, just fixed some missing characters)

...in file Record.class.php, and works fine - thanks!
