Consider the following table definition, where euro is a UDT:

CREATE TABLE euro_sales_table
   (quarter INTEGER
   ,region VARCHAR(20)
   ,sales euro );

Assuming an appropriate cast definition exists for the euro UDT, the following statement converts the values in the sales column to CHAR(10):

SELECT region, CAST (sales AS CHAR(10)) 
FROM euro_sales_table
WHERE quarter = 1;
