string_rtruncation option [compatibility]

Determines whether an error is raised when a string is truncated.

Allowed values

On, Off




If the truncated characters consist only of spaces, no exception is raised. The setting of On corresponds to ANSI/ISO SQL/2003 behavior. When this option is set to Off, the exception is not raised and the character string is silently truncated.

String truncation may occur in several places. For example, using INSERT, UPDATE, CAST, or assignment to a variable may truncate a string if the declared destination type is too short.
