Arithmetic Errors
To specify error handling for numeric overflow, underflow and division by zero, use the connect statement -numeric_overflow=option flag. Error-handling options are:
Specifies that no error is issued
Specifies that a warning message is issued
fail (default setting)
Specifies that an error message is issued and the statement that caused the error is aborted
This flag can also be specified on the command line for Ingres operating system commands that accept QUEL option flags. For details about QUEL option flags, see the quel command description in the Command Reference Guide.
