I am populating a DECIMAL (18, 2) column by doing a computation as below.
COALESCE (CAST ((t1.amount * t2.rate) AS DECIMAL (18, 2)), 0.0)
The issue is some of the 'amount' values in t1 when multiplied with 'rate' value in t2 go beyond the Teradata max decimal limit. For e.g. a combination like below.
T1.A T2.B -1815091030215.00 1633986.92810458
Here T1.A * T2.B = -2965835016691185249.4598847
What should be done to avoid this, any thoughts?
Putting a where condition like
WHERE (T1.A * T2.B) < 9999999999999999.99 will not help as anyway the product needs to be calculated before comparison which will again cause 2616 error.
Thanks & Regards
