DECIMAL(m,d) Unpacked fixed point number.
m defaults to 10, if not specified.
d defaults to 0, if not specified.
Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.
DEC(m,d) Unpacked fixed point number.
m defaults to 10, if not specified.
d defaults to 0, if not specified.
Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.

This is a synonym for the DECIMAL datatype.

NUMERIC(m,d) Unpacked fixed-point number.
m defaults to 10, if not specified.
d defaults to 0, if not specified.
Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.

This is a synonym for the DECIMAL datatype.

FIXED(m,d) Unpacked fixed-point number.
m defaults to 10, if not specified.
d defaults to 0, if not specified.
Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.
(Introduced in MySQL 4.1)

This is a synonym for the DECIMAL datatype.

FLOAT(m,d) Single precision floating point number. Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.
DOUBLE(m,d) Double precision floating point number. Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.
DOUBLE PRECISION(m,d) Double precision floating point number. Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.

This is a synonym for the DOUBLE datatype.

REAL(m,d) Double precision floating point number. Where m is the total digits and d is the number of digits after the decimal.

This is a synonym for the DOUBLE datatype.

FLOAT(p) Floating point number. Where p is the precision.
BOOL Synonym for TINYINT(1) Treated as a boolean data type where a value of 0 is considered to be FALSE and any other value is considered to be TRUE.
BOOLEAN Synonym for TINYINT(1) Treated as a boolean data type where a value of 0 is considered to be FALSE and any other value is considered to be TRUE.

Date/Time Datatypes

The following are the Date/Time Datatypes in MySQL:

Data Type SyntaxMaximum SizeExplanation
DATE Values range from '1000-01-01' to '9999-12-31'. Displayed as 'YYYY-MM-DD'.
DATETIME Values range from '1000-01-01 00:00:00' to '9999-12-31 23:59:59'. Displayed as 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS'.
TIMESTAMP(m) Values range from '1970-01-01 00:00:01' UTC to '2038-01-19 03:14:07' UTC. Displayed as 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS'.
TIME Values range from '-838:59:59' to '838:59:59'. Displayed as 'HH:MM:SS'.

What is the size of BIGINT in MySQL?

Table 11.1 Required Storage and Range for Integer Types Supported by MySQL.

What is BIGINT 20 MySQL?

The "BIGINT(20)" specification isn't a digit limit. It just means that when the data is displayed, if it uses less than 20 digits it will be left-padded with zeros.

What is BIGINT in MySQL?

BIGINT is the MySQL data type that can be assigned to the columns of the table in which we want to store the whole numbers and we are aware that the range of the numbers that we will store in that column will be huge and not exceed the range of the BIGINT data type.

What is the range of BIGINT?

A big integer is a binary integer with a precision of 63 bits. The range of big integers is -9223372036854775808 to +9223372036854775807.
