Integers/Decimal stored with leading spaces in Teradata 14

Hi,

I am working on Teradata 14 and i see that integers/decimal are stored with leading spaces in table. I haven't seen this behavious previously.

create volatile table tmp1col DECIMAL(8,2) ) on commit preserve rows;

ins tmp1 values ('123.72');

ins tmp1 values ('-12.34');

ins tmp1 values (98.76);

sel * from tmp1

 col

1   -12.34

2   98.76

3   123.72

Similar behavious is seen with integers as well

Can anyone explain?
