Subj:   Writing UDF for Numeric Datatypes
From:   Alexander T

Does anyone know the internal storage for Numeric Datatypes.

I want to write a function which takes two numeric datatypes and returns the greater one or 0 according to a condition.

It should be able to support any numeric with variable precisions.

How will I will be able to do that ?

Also I would like to write a to_char function which takes a numeric type and returns the result in varchar.

The cast function will return with a dot. I don't need that .

It should work exactly as the to_char function in oracle.

For eg :

If we have column with type NUMERIC (10, 5) and the actual value in the column is say 105

Then in Teradata will return in teradata as 105.00000 but i need the value as 105 itself.

If anyone knows the internal storage of the teradata Numeric types and how it gets intrepreted , please help.

Not really getting the storing part in the structure DECIMAL8.

Thanks & Regards
