Subj:   DECIMAL(19,2) to DECIMAL(18,2) type casting
From:   Lilian.Ramona


When I do the following:

     AVG(TOT_CNT (DECIMAL(19,2)))

The result Iím getting is 325973967515935.00

But, when I do the following:

     AVG(TOT_CNT (DECIMAL(19,2)))  (DECIMAL(18,2))

The result is 325973967515935.25

The data type of TOT_CNT is DECIMAL(18,2)

* Can some one tell me what is exactly happening when I do AVG (TOT_CNT (DECIMAL (19,2))) (DECIMAL(18,2)) ?

* How is 325973967515935.00 changed to 325973967515935.25?

* Why is there a truncation when I do AVG(TOT_CNT (DECIMAL(19,2))) ?

Thanks in advance.
