Perhaps change your parenthesis around a little....

abs(l.draccr/((l.apr/365)*(365/12)))

100003004075 is a valid bigint.

abs(l.draccr/((l.apr/365)*(365/12)))

365/12 is a static value (30).  So iet's just use that and take advantage of the order of operations :)

abs(cast(((l.draccr/l.apr)/365) as bigint)*30)

Let's see the whole query.  Are you by chance using this in a union where the first part of the union is an INT, or selecting it into a temp table (@ or #) where the data type is defined as an int?

Here is my full query...

Select m.branch as AORGID,l.code as ALNTYPE,abs(h.drint) as AINTINC,
case when l.apr = 0 then 0 else abs(cast(((l.draccr/l.apr)/365) as bigint)*30) end as AAVGBALA,
abs(l.balance) as AACTBALA,l.amount as AORIGAMT,l.apr as AINTRATE
from memb m
INNER JOIN loan l on m.rowno  = l.rowno_membloan_memb
INNER JOIN lohi h on l.rowno = h.rowno_loanlohi_loan
where l.status not in ('closed','writeoff','cancelled')
group by m.acct,m.branch,l.sub,l.amount,l.apr,l.latefee,l.balance,l.deldate,l.status,l.code,l.term,l.opened,
l.ratechange,l.draccr,h.drint
order by 2

is it possible it is one of your other fields, such as l.balance

So you aren't doing any type of inserts on this.

Can you run the following.

select max(draccr/apr) from loan

and this

select abs(cast(((l.draccr/l.apr)/365) as bigint)*30)
from loan

I'm curious if something with the CASE is balling it up.

Ok.  Well now we know that you have a numeric data type.


What about the max of the abs.  Since you are doing an abs after all


select max(abs(draccr/apr)) from loan

you know i ran it again with this line and this time i didn't get any errors, but again most of the data is zero

case when l.apr = 0 then 0 else abs(cast(((l.draccr/l.apr)/365) as bigint)*30) end as AAVGBALA,

And you aren't attempting to select this through a view with a defined type, with a union, into a table, or anything like that?

Why the group by?  You have no aggregates.  That may be causing troubles.
