Ah, good call, I didn't even think to check that. I feel like an idiot...haha I used a sql dump from another one of my databases to create this table and I didn't change the data type of this column when customizing for this site. The insert behavior automatically chose numeric cause the column is numeric. I haven't checked it yet because GoDaddy is acting up and won't let me in to myphpadmin but I'm sure that's it.
Thanks again for all your help, Jason.
