I created a view in an Oracle Database in order to match formatting of a new database/table I am going to be migrating the data to.

The problem is when I look at my view in Oracle I see the correct values (at least values that I expected to see). However, when I bring the view into both ArcMap and ArcCatalog through the add data or database connection those values turn to zeros.

Does anyone have any thoughts? I am using arc10 and SQL Developer

I was able to get this resolved. The connection to the database was set up in ODBC. I changed it to OLE DB and all values are correct. – Arc_Analyst Jun 27 '13 at 20:58
