In the attached code, I am getting the error

Msg 8115, Level 16, State 2, Line 2
Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type int.

after getting the values for 20 rows.

are you able to get an idea which column gives the error with the error message?

thanks

Common sense + trial and error.

Focus on int columns that you are making bigger.  Like this one:

      [size_available_bytes] [int]

Are you using any function calls that return an int value?  Look for CONVERT, CAST, and DATEDIFF in particular...

no, it is a straight insert-select statement. (please remove the - in the select, if you run the query).

Run only Select Statement, If it is returning results, check columns, it should be compitable data with your tmp_size table. take extra eye on int and bigint column. It might be possible that your select statement is returning values that is not be convertible in int, bigint.

May need to comment out half the columns and retry.  Continue to narrow it down that way.  That's what I meant by trial and error.

There's also a remote possibility the error occurs while joining, but I can't see how.

OK. I expanded the numeric columns and also used bigint, so it was probably one of those columns- thanks for the hint and idea.

appreciate you experts.
