|BYTE[(<Length>)]||A binary value with a fixed number of bytes. If the length of the binary value is not specified, then a length of 1 is used. The maximum length is 1024 bytes. When assigning a value to a BYTE type value that is smaller in length than the specified length, the value being assigned will be padded with NULL bytes (0) to the specified length. For example, if you have a column defined as:|
If you were to assign the value 0x00 0x01 0x02 0x03 to the column, then the MyColumn column would contain the value 0x00 0x01 0x02 0x03 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 after the assignment.
|A binary value with a variable number of bytes. The length of the binary value must always be specified. The maximum length is 1024 bytes. Contray to the BYTE type, this type does not pad the binary value with NULL bytes (0).|
|BINARY LARGE OBJECT|
|A large, variable-length binary value with a maximum size of 2 gigabytes.|
-- This example specifies a BYTE literal SELECT * FROM Instruments WHERE Data = X'01F21028'
|BLOB Type||ElevateDB does not support the specification of a default size in kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes for large object types.|
|BYTE and BYTE VARYING Types||ElevateDB adds the BYTE and BYTE VARYING (VARBYTE) types as extended types.|
