## Error description

• ```Db2 may not push down a range join to a Union All view into the
tables of the Union All view.This would prevent Db2 to produce
a sub-optimal plan.
.
The following conditions must be met in order to hit this proble
m:
.
1)  There is a Group By clause on the table and the Union
All view of the range join predicate.
2)  Any column from the table in the range join predicate
derives from an expression that is not a column.
.
For example:
.
create table br1(tranid integer, trandate date, amount decimal);
create table br2(tranid integer, trandate date, amount decimal);
create view ua as (select * from br1 union all select * from
br2);
.
create table datedim(durid integer, startdate date, enddate
date);
.
create view vdatedim(durid, startdate, enddate)
as
(select  durid,
case when month(startdate) = 3 then startdate + 1 day
else startdate end startdate,
enddate
from     datedim
);
.
select ua.trandate, count(tranid), sum(amount)
from    ua, vdatedim
where  ua.trandate between vdatedim.startdate and
vdatedim.enddate
group by ua.trandate
;
.
```
