## What does int 11 means in MySQL?

in int(11), 11 is **the display width of the integer column**, unlike the characters columns where the number means number of character that can be stored. int(11) – The number in the parenthesis i.e () does not determines the max and min values that can be stored in the integer field.

## How do I change the int size in SQL?

If you want to limit the range of an integer column you can use a **check constraint**: create table some_table ( phone_number integer not null check (phone_number between 0 and 9999999999) );

## Can we give size to int in SQL?

The range of an int data type is **-2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647**.

## What does int () mean in MySQL?

In MySQL, INT stands **for the integer that is a whole number**. An integer can be written without a fractional component e.g., 1, 100, 4, -10, and it cannot be 1.2, 5/3, etc. An integer can be zero, positive, and negative. MySQL supports all standard SQL integer types INTEGER or INT and SMALLINT .

## What is varchar in MySQL?

Varchar in MySQL is **a data type used for storing text whose length can have a maximum of 65535 characters**. The varchar columns in the table are of variable length string that can hold either numeric or character or both.

## What BigInt 11?

The largest negative value for an integer is **-2147483648** which is 11 characters and hence the default display width is 11. Similarly for BIGINT the default display width is 20 which is equal to the number of characters in the largest negative BIGINT (-9223372036854775808).

## What does int mean in SQL?

Int is a data type in the database – **an integer (whole number)**. What it means depends on the database you use – in SQL Server the 4 specifies the field precision. However, this will always be the size of an int in SQL Server. It can holdvalues between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647.

## What is difference between Bigint and int?

The int type takes 4 byte signed integer i.e. 32 bits ( 2^{32} values can be stored). The BigInt type takes **8 byte** signed integer i.e. 64 bits (2^{64} values can be stored). Let us see an example.

## What is short data type?

short: The short data type is **a 16-bit signed two’s complement integer**. It has a minimum value of -32,768 and a maximum value of 32,767 (inclusive). As with byte , the same guidelines apply: you can use a short to save memory in large arrays, in situations where the memory savings actually matters.

## What is small INT?

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 int max value?
