Error description

  • Google BigQuery CAST expression supports a target type of STRING
    but no precision specification. In SQL CAST ( 12345 as
    VARCHAR(2)) will produce a VARCHAR with the value 12. Meanwhile
    CAST ( 12345  as STRING) would produce 12345
    DQM currently does not push CAST ( <x> as VARCHAR(n)) to
    BigQuery.
