Error description

  • Customer will get the following warning from db2ckupgrade for
    upgrading to v11.1:
    DBT5534W  Discontinued routine upon which the object depends:
    "SYSFUN.ASCII1".
    
    The warning was caused by SYSFUN.ASCII (CHAR) with specificname
    ASCII1 being removed from V11.1 incorrectly. Consequently, when
    upgrading database from any release to V11.1, any user object
    that depends on this particular function will be invalidated.
    

Local fix

  • After database upgrade, the user should calls
    SYSPROC.ADMIN_REVALIDATE_DB_OBJECT to revalidate the user object
    so that the user object will pick up and depend on
    SYSFUN.ASCII(VARCHAR) instead.
