A 2-byte integer data type used in <codeph>CREATE TABLE</codeph> and <codeph>ALTER TABLE</codeph> statements.

In the column definition of a <codeph>CREATE TABLE</codeph> statement:
<codeblock><varname>column_name</varname> SMALLINT</codeblock>
<b>Range:</b> -32768 .. 32767. There is no <codeph>UNSIGNED</codeph> subtype.
<b>Conversions:</b> Impala automatically converts to a larger integer type (<codeph>INT</codeph> or
<codeph>BIGINT</codeph>) or a floating-point type (<codeph>FLOAT</codeph> or <codeph>DOUBLE</codeph>)
automatically. Use <codeph>CAST()</codeph> to convert to <codeph>TINYINT</codeph>, <codeph>STRING</codeph>,
or <codeph>TIMESTAMP</codeph>.
<ph conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/cast_int_to_timestamp"/>
<p conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/usage_notes_blurb"/>
For a convenient and automated way to check the bounds of the <codeph>SMALLINT</codeph> type, call the
functions <codeph>MIN_SMALLINT()</codeph> and <codeph>MAX_SMALLINT()</codeph>.
If an integer value is too large to be represented as a <codeph>SMALLINT</codeph>, use an
<codeph>INT</codeph> instead.

Physically, Parquet files represent <codeph>TINYINT</codeph> and <codeph>SMALLINT</codeph> values as 32-bit
integers. Although Impala rejects attempts to insert out-of-range values into such columns, if you create a
new table with the <codeph>CREATE TABLE ... LIKE PARQUET</codeph> syntax, any <codeph>TINYINT</codeph> or
<codeph>SMALLINT</codeph> columns in the original table turn into <codeph>INT</codeph> columns in the new
