is set to 0 (the default), indicating Oracle type mode, the name of the data type may be changed to a new name in Oracle type mode.
The name of the data type in Oracle type mode is listed in the right column.
The default leading precision is eight digits for all interval types.
The single field type can be: year, month, day, hour, minute, or second.
Currently, interval types can be specified only with a constant. These are non-persistent types used in SQL expressions at runtime.
A reference to a data type specifies the set of values that can occur in a given context.
A data type is associated with each value retrieved from a table or computed in an expression and each constant.
Times Ten follows the ODBC standard for type conversion.
For more information, refer to ODBC API reference documentation, which is available from Microsoft or a variety of third parties.
In addition, for those comparisons where an interval data type is returned, the interval data type cannot be the final result of a complete expression. If you do not specify a precision or a scale, Times Ten assumes the maximum precision of 38 and flexible scale.
The Number having precision and scale The precision ranges from 1 to 38 decimal. A date and time between 1753-01-01 (midnight on January 1, 1753) and 9999-12-31 pm ( pm on December 31, 9999), inclusive Any values for the fraction not specified in full microseconds result in a " Times Ten supports ANSI SQL data types in Oracle type mode.
These data types are converted to Times Ten data types with data stored as Times Ten data types.
Table 1-2 shows how the ANSI SQL data types are mapped to Times Ten data types.
