Subj:   Re: CHAR(1) Vs BYTEINT

I forgot to add that you would have to include a check constraint on the column as a character data type to make sure that non-numeric data was not stored in the column.

As DECIMAL(1,0) you would be limited to a range of -9 to 9. A check constraint would be prudent to make sure that the data captured is a positve number.
