APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You are  running Statistics in Unicode mode on Mac, and you see
    that the Actual OBDC drivers don't work. The error message
    indicates   the driver is not even found.  When you switch the
    Statistics backend to locale mode, the drivers work fine and
    return data.
    

Local fix

  • The immediate work-around is to switch Statistics to locale mode
    via the Preferences dialog - General tab, "Character Encoding
    for Data and Syntax" setting.
    This issue will be addressed in a future release
