Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of File Manager and File Manager   *
    *                 DB2 component.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 1. In the File Manager DB2 component    *
    *                      Object List Utility, the display of     *
    *                      columns for an index is incorrect when  *
    *                      one or more columns in the index is     *
    *                      an expression.  A similar problem       *
    *                      exists with the KEY command when issued *
    *                      against an index, or the XC command,    *
    *                      when issued against a table.            *
    *                      2. The text for an SQL statement may    *
    *                      be truncated when displayed using the   *
    *                      SQL command.                            *
    *                      3. In the File Manager editor,          *
    *                      duplicate fields/column names when all  *
    *                      displayable fields/columns are marked   *
    *                      as HELD.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    1. The SQL statements used to generate the display showing the:
    a. column(s) for an index
    b. keys for an index
    c. indexes and columns defined against a table
    do not accommodate index expressions.
    2. The last two characters of the SQL statement are not shown.
    3. A logic error occurs when all visible fields are marked as
    HELD, which can result in duplicate fields/columns being
    displayed.
