Error description

  • For Cobol procedure creation, we always reproduced this problem
    on db2v9.5:
    Store Procedure Testing in DB2 V9.5
    =====================================
    1.Using language Cobol
    
    create procedure tp.crossbrd (
     in    lic_user_id            char(8),
     in    lic_pgm_id             char(8),
     in    lic_upd_mode           char(1),
     in    lic_upd_ind            char(12),
     out   lic_ret_cd             integer,
     in    anml_key               integer,
     in    brd_cd                 char(2),
     in    portion_16th           smallint,
     in    anml_reg_cd            decimal(1,0),
     in    hdbk_sect_cd           char(1),
     in    hdbk_sect_sts_cd       char(1),
     in    bsoc_proc_date         char(10),
     in    frgn_hdbk_anml_num     char(13),
     in    stud_fee_ind           decimal(1,0),
     in    hdbk_vol               char(8),
     in    frgn_hdbk_name         char(30),
     in    hdbk_sect_sts_id       integer
    )
           external name 'H80002'
           language cobol
           PARAMETER STYLE GENERAL WITH NULLS
           modifies sql data
    
    
    Result
    ===
    DB21034E  The command was processed as an SQL statement because
    it was
    not a
    valid Command Line Processor command.  During SQL processing it
    returned:
    SQL0451N  The "PARAMETER #9" definition, in the statement that
    defines
    routine
    "TP      .CROSSBRD", contains a data type "DECIMAL" that is not
    appropriate
    for a non-sourced routine written in the given language.  LINE
    NUMBER=21.
    SQLSTATE=42815
    
    SQL0451N  The "PARAMETER #9" definition, in the statement that
    defines
    routine "TP      .CROSSBRD", contains a data type "DECIMAL
    " that is not appropriate for a non-sourced routine written in
    the given
    language.
    
    But above test works fine on db2 v82 and db2 v91.
    

Local fix

  • Change Decimal type to float type
