I have a VB.NET set of tools and part of it which used to work does not seem to work any more as it used to. The part of the script which is not working properly anymore is when adding a field to an existing shapefile. Although I am setting the precision and scale properties of the ifieldedit interface the resultant field displays in ArcMap as having precision and scale values of 0. The type of the field is esriFieldTypeDouble.
What am I missing here?
