The decimal value of the binary representation of the byte is loaded. For example, the input character x"1C" is loaded as 28. The length of a BYTEINT field is always 1 byte. If POSITION(start:end) is specified, then end is ignored. (The data type is UNSIGNED CHAR in C.)

An example of the syntax for this data type is:

(column1 position(1) BYTEINT, 
column2 BYTEINT,
