APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • APAR IC73485 provided an alternate floating point to decimal
    conversion that took a truncation approach instead of rounding.
    A problem has been identified in that alternate approach that
    gives an imprecise conversion. This defect will further correct
    this truncation approach to give a more precise conversion.
    

Local fix

  • Please contact DB2 support team, who can provide guidance on how
    to enable this alternate mode for converting floating point
    types to DECIMAL.
