AnalyticsPlus Startup issue

AnalyticsPlus Startup issue


Unable to start the services when there is a formula column created with static data


When a formula column holds static data (like 123 or 1*24)  then those data types are stored as INT4 or INT8 or float8 because of which the service doesn't start.
