Claudio, why not to use maximum possible size of buffer at
compilation time if sum of data declarations exceed it? And check
overflow on execution time by real data size? Note that FB allows to
have in table chars in size more than declared (after alter column to
less size). If concentrate on declarations only, what will occure on
execution time? Will such a table became unusable? And what about

create table t (a varchar(10), b varchar(20))

insert into t (a,b) values ('1234567890', '0987654321')

update t set a = b

shouldn't it work? Declaration of B is greater than declaration of A.
