No. There should be, but Firebird doesn't enforce it. According the
the standard numeric (4,2) should have a range of values between -99.99
and +99.99 (4 digits of precision, two digits of scale) while decimal
(4,2) must accept at least that range and can accept an implementation
defined range. Firebird accepts larger numbers in both.
