Need to accomodate larger volume for OMS table YFS_SHIPMENT column Total_Volume

Need to accomodate larger volume for OMS table YFS_SHIPMENT column Total_Volume

Field to be defined something like TOTAL_VOLUME Decimal (16,4) ... and not TOTAL_VOLUME Decimal(14,4)

At the moment the TOTAL_VOLUME(14,4) does not accomodate over sized packages when units are in mm

What is your industry? Consumer Products
How will this idea be used?

it is felt that the best way forward for this issue would be to amend the "TOTAL_VOLUME" column in DB table "YFS_SHIPMENT" table to be defined as something like TOTAL_VOLUME DECIMAL (16,4) .... and not TOTAL_VOLUME DECIMAL (14,4).

This would accommodate a volume of 999999999999.9999 = 10mX10mX10m box ... A box would never get to this size.

At the moment 14,4 allows for a volume of 9999999999.9999 cubic millimetres = 9.9999999999999 cubic metres, which is a box that is roughly a box 2.15mX2.15mX2.15m .
