Calculator Error

An error raised during statement execution when a column cannot be populated. For example:

  • an inserted row rejected for having a null value for a not-null column.
  • an inserted row rejected for violating some other column constraint.
  • an arithmetic error (like divide by zero) evaluating an expression.
  • arithmetic overflow or underflow evaluating an expression
  • arithmetic overflow in the accumulator for an aggregate function, such as SUM().
