ArcGIS double fields with precision 10 and scale 0 in an Oracle geodatabase are altered automatically to long integer after previewing it in ArcGIS Desktop 10.6.1, ArcGIS Pro 2.2 or later clients. An error message, "[ORA-01455: converting columns overflows integer datatype]" is returned if the fields contain numbers larger than the maximum for a long integer (2,147,483,647).
The error is expected when a column is created with the data type 'double', precision 10 and scale 0, and stores a value greater than 32-bit integer limit, i.e. 2,147,483,647. A column with the data type 'double' and the precision 0, maps to the Oracle data type NUMBER(10). In ArcMap 10.2.1, this column was mapped with ArcMap the data type 'double' which allowed storing values greater than 2,147,483,647. The mapping has been corrected to represent NUMBER(10) as long integers. Thus, values greater than 2,147,483,647 are no longer allowed.
