Range limitations in Open Client data type mapping

Some data types have different ranges in SQL Anywhere than in Open Client. In such cases, overflow errors can occur during retrieval or insertion of data.

The following table lists Open Client application data types that can be mapped to SQL Anywhere data types, but with some restriction in the range of possible values.

The Open Client data type is usually mapped to a SQL Anywhere data type with a greater range of possible values. As a result, it is possible to pass a value to SQL Anywhere that will be accepted and stored in a database, but that is too large to be fetched by an Open Client application.
