Error Message :
DB Change Utility (ucybchng) fails to count the number of characters correctly if the term 'VALUE' is used.
This problem only affects transport files that were generated under Unix or Linux.
When using a rule like below in the DB change script:
REPLACE_PART JOBS,*, VALUE:&TEST#, 'CA_AUTOMIC\01234', 'CA_AUTOMIC\56789'
Both values 'CA_AUTOMIC\01234' and 'CA_AUTOMIC\56789' are 16 characters long, but DB change invalidly sets a 15 character count for the new value ('F003M000000015' instead of 'F003M000000016') upon amending the transport file:
20171115/160914.845 - Old line:F003M000000016CA_AUTOMIC\01234
20171115/160914.845 - New line:F003M000000015CA_AUTOMIC\56789
This results in truncating the value by one character when the transport is loaded into the target environment.
OS: All Linux/Unix
OS Version: ALL
Root Cause: DB Change Utility (ucybchng) doesn't count the number of characters correctly when the term "VALUE" was used.
This problem happens only for transport case files which have been created on a LINUX or an UNIX OS.
Here is an exemple for the case which led to this problem:
REPLACE_PART 'JOBS', 'SOME_TEST_JOB', 'VALUE:&VAR#', 'old_content', 'new_content'
Update the DB Change Utility to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.
