Error description

  • When loading an application( which has DBCS characters in its
    description field) via batchloader program, EQQYLTOP gets the
     following error
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     1IKJ56727I ODD NUMBER OF BYTES IN A DBCS
    STRING.
     PARSE TERMINATED.
     IKJ56715I INVALID STRING, '   .'' A                 ')

     ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     It seems to be that the batchloader has problems with the DBCS
    content
     of the description field which is as example the follow:
    DESCR(' ᅥᄉ.''ノA                 ')
    Here is the Hex value of the description field:
    CCECD470464775C0444444444444444475
    45239DDE65BDD31F0000000000000000DD
    The problem occurs because the DBCS description text itself
    contains  DBCS x'7D'.

    When loading an application, uploaded with BCIT,
    which has DBCS characters in its
    description field via batchloader program and an apostrophe
    is contained in the field, EQQYLTOP gets the
     following error
     +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     1IKJ56727I ODD NUMBER OF BYTES IN A DBCS
    STRING.
     PARSE TERMINATED.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem was due to the BCIT program.
    When the BCIT unload an application having an apostrophe
    in its description field, it adds an extra apostrophe
    This in order to preserve the original apostrophe
    during the Batch Loader upload.
    But this has to be avoided for DBCS strings. In this
    case the apostrophe is a part of the DBCS char.
