Arithmetic overflow error converting type to data type numeric
This error usually occurs when the type you are trying to convert to a decimal or numeric is larger than the column or casted type you are converting to.
insert into tablename (decnumber) values (cast(1000.00 as decimal(5,2)))
Since the number specifed is 7 digits long include after the decimal and the converted type can only contain a maximum of 5 digits, you will receive this error.
Changing the table to hold 7,2 and/or changing this in the cast will resolve it.
