Trouble Exporting to Access 2002

Dear all

I am having trouble to correctly export my data from SAS 9.1.3 to Access 2002 SP 3 under Windows XP. A strange rounding error appears throughout my whole dataset: every time a negative round number should be exported (like a "-1.000000" in the SAS-table) it somehow gets rounded down in Access to "-0.999999" is there a reason for that? Can anyone explain why this happens, and does anyone have an idea how this can be fixed?

The variable in sas has the format "8.", and I'm exporting with following statement:

PROC EXPORT DATA= output_sas_table
OUTTABLE= "output_table"
DBMS=ACCESS REPLACE;
DATABASE="c:\path\to\some\access_file.mdb";

Thanks in advance.

Regards
