Vantage permits the assignment and comparison of some types without requiring the types to be explicitly converted. SQL Engine also performs implicit type conversions in the following cases:
  • On some argument types passed to macros, stored procedures, and SQL functions such as SQRT.
  • On the expression that defines a time zone displacement in an AT clause.
