APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • DBMS_UTIILITY.COMMA_TO_TABLE function takes a delimited list
    of identifiers as a parameter to the function.  Valid
    identifiers
    are strings that begin with the following characters:
    a-z or A-Z
    
    Without this fix, the function will incorrectly allow
    invalid identifiers like:
    10
    _abc
    5abc
    
    This APAR will properly cause a failure in the form of SQL0171N
    if invalid identifiers are input to the function.
    

Local fix

  • Upgrade to 97FP4 which contains the fix.
