# Increase the decimals for Decimal Datatype

I need to have a decimal column that has 15 decimal places. but I'm having an error. How can I set to increase the decimal for my column?

thanks in advance

Hi Ron,

You can't set it above 9, sorry... I believe (not 100% sure) this limit is due to a compromise struck between the limits of both the database and .Net's decimal implementations so that usage is seamless across the platform.

Regards,

Miguel
