Table containing column type

Is there a table that contains the column type? I need to make a cursor of all numeric five columns in a table.

dba_tab_columns is a data dictionary view which contains the info you need. If you don't have access to the "dba" views, try looking at all_tab_columns or user_tab_columns.
