### How do you get the max value of a string in SQL?

You can use CAST() with MAX() for this. Since the string is filled with string and integer, fir example, “STU201”, therefore we need to use CAST().

#### What does VARCHAR 30 mean?

The CHAR and VARCHAR types are declared with a length that indicates the maximum number of characters you want to store. For example, CHAR(30) can hold up to 30 characters. The length of a CHAR column is fixed to the length that you declare when you create the table. The length can be any value from 0 to 255.

What are CHAR in SQL?

Char is a data type in SQL that can store characters of a fixed length. What is a datatype? A data type defines the type of data that a declared variable can hold. Data could be a string of single-byte or multibyte numbers, letters, numbers or any other characters that are supported by the database locale.

What is Int_min and INT_MAX?

INT_MIN specifies that an integer variable cannot store any value below this limit. Values of INT_MAX and INT_MIN may vary from compiler to compiler. Following are typical values in a compiler where integers are stored using 32 bits. Value of INT_MAX is +2147483647. Value of INT_MIN is -2147483648.

## What are the minimum and maximum values of a char datatype?

The maximum and minimum value that can be stored in a signed char is stored as a constant in climits header file and can be named as SCHAR_MAX and SCHAR_MIN respectively. A minimum value that can be stored in a signed char data type is typically -128, i.e. around –27 (but is compiler dependent).

### Can we use Max on char column?

YES.

#### How do I find the maximum value of a row in SQL?

To find the maximum value of a column, use the MAX() aggregate function; it takes a column name or an expression to find the maximum value. In our example, the subquery returns the highest number in the column grade (subquery: SELECT MAX(grade) FROM student ).

How many bytes is a CHAR?

What does CHAR 13 mean in SQL?

Carriage Return
We use Char(13) for identifying and removing Carriage Return and Char(10) for removing line break along with the SQL REPLACE function. The replace function replaces line break with a space as specified in the query: 1. 2.

## What is value of INT_MIN?

Values of INT_MAX and INT_MIN may vary from compiler to compiler. Following are typical values in a compiler where integers are stored using 32 bits. Value of INT_MAX is +2147483647. Value of INT_MIN is -2147483648.
