Matching MS SQL type "Numeric" in a customized generator.

Hi I'm trying to customize a Int32generator to fill data into a field of type numeric(38,0).

What type should I use in the configuration to be able to match the field

I've tried with something like:
<type type="Numeric" />
<type type="numeric" />
<type type="Numeric(38,0)" />

But none of those works for me.

Any suggestions?

Btw: I don't have control of the database schema so changing the field type is not an option.

    Thanks for your post. The below seems to work for me, although you'll need to copy your xml file into the "Config" folder for Data Generator to pick it up I think (at least, I did!)

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

    <property name="Increment">1</property>
    <property name="MinValue">1</property>
    <property name="MaxValue">1000</property>

    <type sqlType="Integer64"/>
    <type sqlType="Integer32"/>
    <type sqlType="Integer16"/>
    <type sqlType="Byte"/>
    <type sqlType="Numeric"/>
