We recently migrated from coldfusion 7 to coldfusion 8. One of our reporting flex apps takes the returned results of a cfc query and adds up a column in that ArrayCollection. It worked on coldfusion 7, but now, in coldfusion 8, it sees that column as a string instead of a number, which is causing NaN errors on negative values. Its a numeric(12,2) NOT NULL in the database. It works in Flex when I cast it as a Number(var) but I'd hate to do that in all of our projects... has anyone ran into this problem?
