    Hi Pavan,

    The basic difference between Number(DEC) and INT4 is its internal storage in system.

    For Number (DEC) - Value internally stored as packed number with 3 decimal places whereas INT 4 as 4 byte integer without decimal places.

    For counter KF, you can go for INT 4.


    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
