The number you are trying to convert is too large to fit into (11,5). I suggest you increase the size from (11, 5) to (15, 5) to match the datatype of Test.

But i want to store the values to destination from source which has the same size..

I cannot increase the size from (11, 5) to (15, 5) to match the datatype of Test..

SourceQuery:
select CONVERT(NUMERIC(11, 5), test) Name from sourcetable

DestinationTable:

columnname     Type           computed       Length    Precision     scale
---------- ------------    ------------     ---------  ----------   -------	
DestTest 		numeric		no		9	15   		5
