Error description

  • Problem with DBMONEY and external tables.
    
    When creating an external table, DBMONEY can be set as table
    option to specify the currency format and / or decimal
    separator.
    
    If the DBMONEY clause is not specified, the data format should
    be determined by the setting of the DBMONEY environment
    variable.
    We describe this in our documentation.
    
    
    The problem:
    
    With IDS 12.10 the data format will be determined always by the
    DBMONEY environment variable even when the DBMONEY clause is set
    and has the same decimal separator.
    When the decimal separator in DBMONEY environment variable
    differs from the content in the external table the error -1213
    appears.
    The DBMONEY clause has no effect.
    
    We cannot use external tables which have different decimal
    separators in data with the type DECIMAL because the DBMONEY
    clause will not be used.
    
    The (local) DBMONEY clause, when defining an external table,
    should have priority over the (global) DBMONEY environment
    variable.  We describe this in the online documentation.
