Why does db:schema:dump change float to double ?

I have tables with double as their field's datatype. When I ran db:schema:dump, Rails changed all of these double to float. I would like to know why, and if there is anyway I could preserve the datatype.

Thanks a lot, Chris

Migrations do not support double data types to my knowledge. You would need to use database specific SQL to retain the double data type.


Darn it ! Oh well.

Thanks a lot for your answer :slight_smile: Chris
