Detailed Description

Exception thrown on attempting to access a scalar column as vector data.

This exception will be thrown if the user tries to call a read/write operation with a signature appropriate for a vector column on a scalar column, or vice versa. For example in the case of write operations, the vector versions require the specification of (a) a number of rows to write over, (b) a vector of lengths to write to each row or (c) a subset specification. The scalar versions only require a number of rows if the input array is a plain C-array, otherwise the range to be written is the size of the input vector.
