The Data Type tab of the Column property sheet has the following components:
Built-in type This option, which is always selected, enables you to choose a predefined data type for the column from the dropdown list. Integers, character strings, and dates are examples of predefined data types. For some of these types, you can specify size and/or scale.
Note that in UltraLite, the built-in type VARCHAR is the equivalent of both CHAR and VARCHAR in SQL Anywhere.
Size Specifies the length of string columns, or the total number of digits to the left and right of the decimal point in the result of any decimal arithmetic for numeric columns. For numeric columns, the size is also called the precision value.
For more information about the precision value, see UltraLite precision property.
Scale Specifies the minimum number of digits after the decimal point when an arithmetic result is truncated to the maximum precision value.
See Data types in UltraLite.
