When I try to use parametrized insert commands like "Insert into mytable ... Values(?a,?b,?c)" I get an error for the non-string parameters added with "cmd.Parameters.Add("?a",(decimal) 2.4)" for example. The error is a standard syntax error and the command string it refers to has the right decimal numbers but also some odd square-like characters [] (you know!). 
  If I transform my decimals into strings it works just fine but I need it to work my way because i use Globalization settings and ToString() just messes things up. This is urgent and I can't fix it. Please help. Thnak you!

How to repeat:
.NET Connector 1.04
INSERT command with DECIMAL PARAMETERS generates syntax error

Suggested fix:
If I only knew.
