  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • DB2 may produce -901 error with  "unexpected error at
    MinMaxPartialEvaluator.cpp:98" when the following conditions are
    satisfied:
    1. Default string units are CODEUNITS32.
    2. The query implicitly casts non-string values (e.g. numerical,
    datetime, boolean) to VARCHAR.
    3. The query contains columnar tables.
    4. There exists a MIN or MAX aggregate function over the
    implicit cast.
    
    For example:
        UPDATE DB CFG FOR TESTDB USING STRING_UNITS CODEUNITS32;
        CREATE TABLE T( I INT ) ORGANIZE BY COLUMN;
        SELECT MAX( I || '' ) FROM T;
    

Local fix

  • Modify the above query to perform an explicit cast to VARCHAR:
    SELECT MAX( CAST( I AS VARCHAR(20) ) || '' ) FROM T;
