I duped a SQL Server 2008 Table, TEST_Polynomials to TEST_Polynomials2, in order to change the datatypes from a "real" to a "decimal(21, 18). When I executed my script, I received an "Arithmetic overflow error converting real to data type numeric". Is this even possible? If so, how would I go about finding which record(s) are causing the error? I have attached a screenshot!
