Hi Experts, I'm having a problem I don't understand. I need to cast a real to a integer and I test on the maximum possible int value. When I do casting I get the "Arithmetic overflow error for type int, value = 2147483648.000000"

Check the code

tnx leon
DECLARE @myFloatToInt AS FLOAT

SET @myFloatToInt = 2147483647
 

DECLARE @myFloatToIntToBig AS FLOAT

SET @myFloatToIntToBig = 6666666666
 

DECLARE @myRealToInt AS REAL

SET @myRealToInt = 2147483647
 

DECLARE @myRealToIntToBig AS REAL

SET @myRealToIntToBig = 6666666666
 
 

SELECT  CASE WHEN @myFloatToInt > 2147483647 THEN 2147483647

             ELSE @myFloatToInt

        END AS myFloatToInt

      , CASE WHEN @myFloatToIntToBig > 2147483647 THEN 2147483646

             ELSE @myFloatToIntToBig

        END AS myFloatToBig

      , CASE WHEN @myRealToInt > 2147483647 THEN 2147483647

--             ELSE @myRealToInt

             ELSE CAST(@myRealToInt AS INT)

        END AS myRealInt

      , CASE WHEN @myRealToIntToBig > 2147483647 THEN 2147483646 

             ELSE @myRealToIntToBig 

        END AS myRealToBig

From memory and if I am not mistaken the value 2147483648.000000 is above the defined threshold for int.  Please cast as bigint instead.

hi check the below code... i have changed INT to BIGINT in the above code in CAST.
please let me know if there is any issue.
bye.

DECLARE @myFloatToInt AS FLOAT

SET @myFloatToInt = 2147483647

 

DECLARE @myFloatToIntToBig AS FLOAT

SET @myFloatToIntToBig = 6666666666

 

DECLARE @myRealToInt AS REAL

SET @myRealToInt = 2147483647

 

DECLARE @myRealToIntToBig AS REAL

SET @myRealToIntToBig = 6666666666

 

 

SELECT  CASE WHEN @myFloatToInt > 2147483647 THEN 2147483647

             ELSE @myFloatToInt

        END AS myFloatToInt

      , CASE WHEN @myFloatToIntToBig > 2147483647 THEN 2147483646

             ELSE @myFloatToIntToBig

        END AS myFloatToBig

      , CASE WHEN @myRealToInt > 2147483647 THEN 2147483647

--             ELSE @myRealToInt

             ELSE CAST(@myRealToInt AS BIGINT)

        END AS myRealInt

      , CASE WHEN @myRealToIntToBig > 2147483647 THEN 2147483646 

             ELSE @myRealToIntToBig 

        END AS myRealToBig

I'd suggest making all compares in the same data type (preferably the one with the largest capacity) to avoid data type precedence cast issues.

let me re-phrase: I'm writing some adaptor in SISS and the real-field and the integer-field are given; I can't change the type. Because the real-field can contain a bigger numeric value then the integer-field I need to check the max value as in:
SELECT  CASE WHEN @myFloatToInt > 2147483647 THEN 2147483647
             ELSE @myFloatToInt
        END AS myFloatToInt
But when the value is bigger than 2147483647 than iit gets rounded to 2147483648.000000 (which is bigger than the max int-value 2147483647)

You need to do explicit casting...

SELECT  CASE WHEN @myFloatToInt > cast(2147483647 as real) THEN 2147483647
             ELSE @myFloatToInt
        END AS myFloatToInt

hi Racimo, still doesn't solve my problem. Check

--             ELSE @myRealToInt  --  is OK
             ELSE CAST(@myRealToInt AS INT)  -- goes wrong

in the code snippet

DECLARE @myFloatToInt AS FLOAT

SET @myFloatToInt = 2147483647
 

DECLARE @myFloatToIntToBig AS FLOAT

SET @myFloatToIntToBig = 6666666666
 

DECLARE @myRealToInt AS REAL

SET @myRealToInt = 2147483647
 

DECLARE @myRealToIntToBig AS REAL

SET @myRealToIntToBig = 6666666666
 

SELECT  CASE WHEN @myFloatToInt > 2147483647 THEN 2147483647

             ELSE @myFloatToInt

        END AS myFloatToInt

      , CASE WHEN @myFloatToIntToBig > 2147483647 THEN 2147483646

             ELSE @myFloatToIntToBig

        END AS myFloatToBig

      , CASE WHEN @myRealToInt > CAST(2147483647 AS REAL) THEN 2147483647

--             ELSE @myRealToInt  --  is OK

             ELSE CAST(@myRealToInt AS INT)  -- goes wrong

        END AS myRealInt

      , CASE WHEN @myRealToIntToBig > 2147483647 THEN 2147483646 

             ELSE CAST(@myRealToIntToBig AS INT)

        END AS myRealToBig

hi,
cast to bigint will solve the issue. but the value might crossed the range of bigint. I suggest you to keep it to float or cast it to nvarchar or so...

I didn't "see" the solution rightaway, hence my re-phrase. Extra words of the experts would have helped me. I was to busy to see I guess
