APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using a FileDSN to import data in microsoft Excel, the
    dialog box asks for a DBALIAS even if DATABASE keyword is
    already set in the FILEDSN.  Unless a DBALIAS is selected the OK
    button in the dialogbox remains disabled due to which importing
    data is not possible using a FILEDSN. However, if the DATABASE
    keyword has been set in the FILEDSN , the drop down list should
    not be enabled and we should be able to import data even without
    selecting a dbalias.
    

Local fix

  • Add the following keywords in FILEDSN :
    REPAINT=2
    

Problem summary

  • First fixed v9.5 FP2
    

Problem conclusion

  • Please use v9.5 FP2 onwards to avoid the problem.
