   Hi!


Percentage is usually stored in a database either as an Integer value or as Float/Double value.

ok, but i'd like to control that values are not higher than 100, and not negatives.

WHen you create your table you can issue a check
like the attached code snippet shows

postgres=# CREATE TABLE mytable (
postgres(#    nr integer,
postgres(#    percentige numeric,  CHECK (percentige > 0 and percentige <= 100)
postgres(# );
CREATE TABLE

Open in new window
