2 things
* you don't specify NULL , you specify NOT NULL or you specify nothing.
* decimal(93), decimal(232) ? seriously ?
I can explain it to you, but i can not understand it for you.

the table definition is against all good sense,
read the manuals and the redbooks about the varchar quirks
somewhere it tells the number of chars for which a varchar is a waste of resources

a select on a varchar takes more resources that a select on a fixed length column

a a varchar(4) is certainly a waste, anyway the lower limit for varchar choice is pretty high
apart the varchar(120) I would make them all fixed some thinking about the varchar(35)

rereadig ... a varchar(1) is just a plain good judgement murder moreover with the null indicator.

wiser to review the whole shebang

I was able to create and Yes I made some changes in the value(VARCHAR/CHAR) which could Prevent hampering the resource utilisation.
