Expressions passed to this function must have the following data types:
- numeric_value = BYTEINT, SMALLINT, INTEGER, BIGINT, DECIMAL/NUMERIC, FLOAT/REAL/DOUBLE PRECISION, or NUMBER
- places_value = NUMBER
For the places_value argument, you can also pass values with data types that can be converted to INTEGER using the implicit data type conversion rules that apply to UDFs. Implicit type conversion is not supported for the numeric_value argument.
