    ****************************************************************
    As part of this fix we have introduced a new option -fla to
    ingest the *.dbf files which contains '*' symbols in them in
    NUMERIC fields.
    The loadshp utility can be used as below for example:
    loadshp -o create -l test_avl,geom -f test_avl -D dwh -srid 5
    -log /tmp -fla
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in Informix Server 12.10.xC15 and 14.10.xC5.
