mdb-export and decimal values

mdb-export is a very nice tool to manage MsAccess database under Linux. For one of my project, I have to automate the import of a mdb file into a mysql database.

You need to pay attention to the data type of the original Access file, especially to decimal values

In our case, the decimal values were truncated just as integer values. They were defined a “réel simple” in french, thus probably “simple real” in english. Changing the type as “réel double” (“real double” ) solved the problem !
