data-types

====== Data Types ====== You can use the following data types in HPL/SQL programs: | **Data Type** ||| **Description** | | BIGINT | INT8 || 64-bit integer | | BINARY_DOUBLE ||| Double precision floating-point number | | BINARY_FLOAT ||| Single precision floating-point number | | BINARY_INTEGER ||| 32-bit integer | | BIT ||| 0, 1 or NULL | | BOOL | BOOLEAN || True or false | | CHAR(//n//) | CHARACTER(//n//) || Fixed-length string | | DECIMAL(//p,s//) ||| Fixed-point number | | DATE ||| Date (year, month and day) | | DATETIME ||| Date and time | | DOUBLE | DOUBLE PRECISION || Double precision floating-point number | | FLOAT ||| Single precision floating-point number | | INT | INTEGER | INT4 | 32-bit integer | | NCHAR(//n//) ||| Fixed-length string | | NVARCHAR(//n//) ||| Variable-length string | | NUMERIC(//p,s//) ||| Fixed-point number | | NUMBER(//p,s//) ||| Fixed-point number | | PLS_INTEGER ||| 32-bit integer | | REAL ||| Single precision floating-point number | | RECORD ||| Arbitrary record | | SIMPLE_DOUBLE ||| Double precision floating-point number | | SIMPLE_FLOAT ||| Single precision floating-point number | | SIMPLE_INTEGER ||| 32-bit integer | | SMALLINT | INT2 || 16-bit integer | | SYS_REFCURSOR ||| Cursor variable | | TIMESTAMP ||| Date and time | | TINYINT ||| 8-bit integer | | VARCHAR(//n//) | VARCHAR(max) || Variable-length string | | VARCHAR2(//n//) ||| Variable-length string | | UTL_FILE.FILE_TYPE ||| File handle | ===== Data Type Conversion ===== If CREATE TABLE contains a data type that is not supported by Hive, it is automatically converted by HPL/SQL. Currently HPL/SQL performs the following conversions: | **Source** | **Hive SQL** | | BIT | TINYINT | | DATETIME | TIMESTAMP | | INT(n) | INT | | INT2 | SMALLINT | | INT4 | INT | | INT8 | BIGINT | | NCHAR(n) | STRING | | NVARCHAR(n) | STRING | | NUMBER(p,s) | DECIMAL(p,s) | | NUMERIC(p,s) | DECIMAL(p,s) | | TEXT | STRING | | VARCHAR(MAX) | STRING | | VARCHAR2(n) | STRING | For more information, see [[conversion|On-the-Fly Conversion]]
