Some tables with Decimal fields won't migrate at all, giving me a message saying that Decimal field types can't be migrated.

Others DO get migrated, but the data type appears as (nil) in the Creates.sql script.

This seems to be quite inconsistent - attempting to migrate the same database again told me there were NO mapping problems, where the first time there were around 15 tables (out of 147) which wouldn't migrate because of Decimal fields.

How to repeat:
One of the fields which wouldn't migrate has the following definition:

Field Size: Decimal
Precision: 4
Scale: 0
Decimal Places: Auto
Required: No
Indexed: No

All other properties are blank

Suspect the fix is to map the Access DECIMAL number type to the MySQL DECIMAL type

I had problems when the scale property is 0.
