How can I CAST a numeric column to a NUMERIC with different precision and/or scale?
edited August 2020 in General Discussion
As part of integrating a new system we're focusing on dumping the information as PARQUET files but found out there is a limitation on precision and scale for NUMERIC fields. We thought about casting but can't figure out the syntax correctly and couldn't find anything online beyond altering the values in the table with an add/alter dance
Thanks! I was using the CAST and didn't think about changing the format
