The maximum value an int can hold in MySQL (assuming that is what you’re using) is 2147483647.

See https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/integer-types.html

i am using l SQL Server Management Studio and SQL Server 2022 Express

Even if it is for MySQL I guess it’s the same in Mssql

the maximum and minimum numbers that can be stored in an INTEGER column are the same for all databases

but the link you posted (about the “display width”) is only for MySQL, and it’s a fairly good explanation of this feature, except for one problem – it says “If the column has ZEROFILL it will always store the number of characters for that column” but of course that’s not true, because integers are always stored in 4 bytes binary, and in particular the leading zeros are not actually stored as characters

I am somewhat cautious here…

^ This one gives me pause.

Be careful to be precise about what you’re saying… INT is different from NUMERIC, which are both Transact-SQL types, but have different ranges.
