Subj:   Re: Storing 20 digits value in teradata
 
From:   Victor Sokovin

Rachana,

I'm afraid it is not possible to store such integers as numeric type as yet. DECIMAL stops short at 18 digits. I also had a look at the FLOAT data type and saw that it uses the 52-bit mantissa. I make it like 15- and some 16-digit numbers at most. So, this type does not offer more than DECIMAL does, with all additional limitations of floating point operations on 'integers'.

There is always (VAR)CHAR but that's probably not what you were looking for.


Regards,

Victor
