Hello,

Neither will make much of a performance difference (though i don't know exactly what you mean - decimal is a form of numeric).

Most time in programs is not spent doing arithmetic.

Dick,
I guess by 'real' she means 'real numbers/floating point numbers'.

Minakshi,
Performance wise-
Packed decimal > Binary > Floating point/ Real

(This is still debatable though. icon_smile.gif )
