You would receive the following error message:
You may want to right this error by means of defining the extent column as a FLOAT column with precision between 1 and 126. In this example, we are defining our FLOAT with a precision of 8
CREATE TABLE supplier ( supplier_id numeric(10) not null, supplier_name varchar2(50) not null, quantity float(8) );
