## How big is small INT in SQL?

The SMALLINT data type stores small whole numbers that range from –32,767 to 32,767. The maximum negative number, –32,768, is a reserved value and cannot be used. The SMALLINT value is stored as a signed binary integer.

## What is integer size in SQL?

Integer. Allows whole numbers between -32,768 and 32,767. 2 bytes. Long. Allows whole numbers between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647.

**How big is a small INT?**

SMALLINT values have only 16 bits. They can represent whole numbers from –32,767 through 32,767.

### Can we give INT size in SQL?

MySQL has an extension where INT(N) means an INT with a display width of 4 decimal digits. This information is maintained in the metadata. The INT itself is still 4 bytes, and values 10000 and greater can be stored (and probably displayed, but this depends how the application uses the result set).

### What is small int in SQL Server?

The SMALLINT data type stores small whole numbers that range from –32,767 to 32,767. The maximum negative number, –32,768, is a reserved value and cannot be used. The SMALLINT value is stored as a signed binary integer. Integer columns typically store counts, quantities, and so on.

**What does Int 4 mean in MySQL?**

For example, INT(4) specifies an INT with a display width of four digits. This optional display width may be used by applications to display integer values having a width less than the width specified for the column by left-padding them with spaces.

#### How many digits can int hold SQL?

10 digits

The INTEGER data type stores whole numbers that range from -2,147,483,647 to 2,147,483,647 for 9 or 10 digits of precision. The number 2,147,483,648 is a reserved value and cannot be used.

#### What is short integer?

A short integer can represent a whole number that may take less storage, while having a smaller range, compared with a standard integer on the same machine. In C, it is denoted by short. It is required to be at least 16 bits, and is often smaller than a standard integer, but this is not required.

**How many digits can Int hold SQL?**

## What is integer data type in SQL?

Integer data types hold numbers that are whole, or without a decimal point. (In Latin, integer means whole.) ANSI SQL defines SMALLINT , INTEGER , and BIGINT as integer data types. The difference between these types is the size of the number that they can store.

## What is an int 8 SQL?

The int8 data type is a machine-independent method that represents numbers in the range -(2 63 -1) to 2 63-1. For a complete description of the INT8 and SERIAL8 SQL data types, see the IBM Informix Guide to SQL: Reference .

**What does it mean by int 5?**

In MySQL, INT(5) does not mean that values are limited to 5-character values. It only means that MySQL will try to pad these values with spaces/zeroes when returning them. The numeric range of any signed INT including INT(10), INT(5) or any other INT(n) is: -2,147,483,648 2,147,483,647, which is 10 digits at most.

### What does integer 10 mean in SQL?

INT(10) means you probably defined it as INT UNSIGNED . So, you can store numbers from 0 up to 4294967295 (note that the maximum value has 10 digits, so MySQL automatically added the (10) in the column definition which (10) is just a format hint and nothing more.

### What is the limit of int?
