Thank you for your feedback. We need some more information before we can take action on this request.

Can you share some more context re why you need a decimal (vs. the EDM.double that we support today) or money? Do your fields include signs like $?

As a workaround, with the recent release of Cognitive Search, you can create a custom skill to transform any field

Thanks,

    Decimal datatype provides a level of accuracy that Double does not. On a financial application where every fraction counts, double types cannot be used. Decimal is mandatory.

    Will that help in supporting this feature to be added to the roadmap? Thanks!
