IC71535: IMPORT WITH KEEPBLANKS OPTION MIGHT GENERATE A SQL3117W FOR NUMERIC COLUMN

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If the IMPORT utility is invoked with the KEEPBLANKS modifier,
    and the first column in the data file is a numeric column (ie.
    smallint, int, bigint, float, real, decimal), and the data
    column value is padded with spaces before or after the numeric
    value, then Import will not parse the value as a numeric type
    but instead return a SQL3117W if the column is nullable, or
    reject the record if the column is not nullable.
    This problem only effects v95fp6, and v97fp2 and v97fp3.
    

Local fix

  • Remove space padding from around numeric column values in the
    data file.
