The following restrictions apply to CLOB, BLOB, and UDT types in a COALESCE expression.

Data Type Restrictions
BLOB A BLOB can only appear in the argument list when it is cast to BYTE or VARBYTE.
CLOB A CLOB can only appear in the argument list when it is cast to CHAR or VARCHAR.
UDT Multiple UDTs can appear in the argument list only when they are identical types because Vantage does not perform implicit type conversion on UDTs in a COALESCE expression.
