APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The out-of-box the ATTRVALDESC.VALUE field is 254 bytes long.
    The dataload utility truncates any value it is loading into that
     column to 254 bytes to ensure it will fit.  If the schema has
    been customized to provide for a longer column length, it will
    still be truncated.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    Users that have custom schema with ATTRVALDESC.VALUE longer than
    254 bytes.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    The dataload utility truncates ATTRVALDESC.VALUE to 254 bytes
    despite custom schema that has been altered to provide a longer
    column length.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    Some attribute value data is truncated.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed the AttributeDictionaryAttributeMediator and
    AbstractCatalogEntryMediator to use the actual column length
    defined in schema instead of hard-coding it.
