    What are the drawbacks of NOT specifying a precision for a number column.

    e.g.
    COLUMN_NAME NUMBER

    as opposed to:

    COLUMN_NAME NUMBER(10)

    Does ODBC handle both the same when reading from an Oracle database?

    Yes, ODBC does.
    The Number precision is restricted within oracle environment.
