Field A Decimal (15,2)
Field B Decimal (15,3)


SELECT
A / B

FROM C
WHERE ACCT_NUM = '001000020000'


I wanted to divide these two fields and i get the above SQLCODE -419 as below:


DSNT408I SQLCODE = -419, ERROR: A DECIMAL DIVIDE OPERATION IS INVALID BECAUSE THE RESULT WOULD HAVE A NEGATIVE SCALE

I tried using CAST but was not getting the values after decimal points in the ouput. please help

well, I imagine you problem lies with not understanding the importance of scale.

but, what was your attempt at casting that did not work?
