Arithmetic overflow when trying to create a database.


Hi Michael,

I get an arithmetic overflow when trying to create a database for the first time.

  • Start toad
  • Connect to a server
  • Open Object Explorer
  • Select databases
  • Right-click + Create Database

==> Arithmetic overflow.

Press OK, Right-click + Create Database and then it works.



Hello Jean-Pierre,

We are currently unable to reproduce this issue. Could you send me the script that is generated from the create database dialog, the output of select @@version as well as the ExceptionTrace.log file that is located in the application data directory.



Hello Michael

This is the ASE version :Adaptive Server Enterprise/15.5/EBF 17218 SMP/P/NT (IX86)/Windows 2003/ase155/2391/32-bit/OPT/Mon Nov 09 14:18:14 2009

I have just installed build 776 and I can’t reproduce the issue anymore.

Hello Jean-Pierre,

Glad to hear you no longer have the issue. Please let me know if it happens to come up again.
