Error description

  • SYSCAT.COLUMNS and SYSIBM.SYSCOLUMNS may show INLINE_LENGTH of 0
    for a table's LOB columns following ALTER TABLE DROP COLUMN
    statements against the table. This issue can be seen when
    dropping a column earlier than a LOB column in the table
    definition.
    
    ie. when dropping a column of a table where the COLNO for the
    dropped column is less than the COLNO for a LOB column in the
    same table
