In Field Mode, numeric overflow in character to numeric conversion is not treated as an error. If the result exceeds the number of digits normally reserved for the data type, asterisks are displayed.

In Record and Indicator Variable Modes, numeric overflow is reported as an error. This behavior applies to both the CAST and Teradata conversion syntax.
