While connecting MySQL database I am getting the following error.

Unexpected error: Input string was not in a correct format.


Once we connect the database, we can see all the tables, however when we click on one of the table, we are getting above error. We could zoom into the error by some R&D and realized if a table is having only character fields, we could connect to that table but if table is having numeric fields, this error appears.


Let me know if anyone has encountered this issue?
