Description:

Since upgrading to CA Easytrieve 11.x from 6.x, we've found that when we use DQSCGEN to Generate static command program statements following an 11.x compile, the following SQL errors are produced at run-time (the -501 seems to continue infinitely).

WARNING, non-zero SQL code returned. SQL code is -180.

INFORMATION.

The problem here is that DB2 thinks there is an invalid DATE value because the date fields checked in the SELECT have not been initialized. This is because the SELECT processing is done before the START proc runs, and the dates are set in the START proc.

When using SQL files on the JOB statement, the immediately following SELECT is executed before the START proc coded on the JOB statement.

Solution:

In order to correct this, you will need to use the DEFER parameter on the SQL FILE statement. For example FILE db2file SQL DEFER... Although the behavior in 11.x is different than in 6.x, it because 6.x behaved incorrectly. In 11.x, this has been corrected.

Please see the "Using DEFER with SELECT" section in the "SQL Database Processing" chapter of the Programming Guide for more information (Chapter 4, page 177).
