Error description

  • Export CLOB to IXF file, then IMPORT/LOAD the CLOB into XML
    column might fail to load the CLOB with SQL3168W.
    
    This is due to the IXF file has non-zero double-byte codepage
    for the CLOB column, and IMPORT/LOAD code rejects that.
    IMPORT/LOAD should allow it.
    

Local fix

  • The workaround is to use  MODIFIED BY FORCEIN when doing
    IMPORT/LOAD.
