Subj:   Re: Data Type for a large table
 
From:   Barner, Eric

This begs an interesting question.

I get why integer math would be faster in general.

But if the decimal values have no digits to the right of the decimal place, i.e. Decimal(8,0) , how is it treated differently internally in Teradata when integer math could be substituted.


Thanks,

Eric W. Barner
