Error description

  • When editing a VARCHAR field in FM/DB2, and changing a value in

    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of File Manager DB2 component.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In the File Manager DB2 component       *
    *                      editor, trailing spaces at the end of   *
    *                      a VARCHAR field are removed even when   *
    *                      the "Remove trailing spaces" editor     *
    *                      option is not selected.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    1. Internal processing resets the length of the VARCHAR field
    regardless of the editor option setting.
    2. Under some circumstances (for example varying fields where
    scrolling is required to see all of the data and varying fields
    that contain other than readable text) the current behavior can
    result in unexpected data truncation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • File Manager DB2 component has been changed to correct the
    problem.  This APAR provides a small enhancement to the FM/DB2
    editor.  The enhancement adds a new editor option that disables
    the processing associated with the "input string delimiter" for
    VARCHAR fields.
