Error description

  • When using UNLOAD to convert the FLOAT column
    from hex HFP to binary BFP.  The output from the UNLOAD with
    the FLOAT IEEE format specified does not have the column
    converted to the IEEE format.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All DB2 9 for z/OS, DB2 10 for z/OS and DB2  *
    *                 11 for z/OS users of UNLOAD utility with     *
    *                 FLOAT IEEE                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: UNLOAD FLOAT IEEE without field         *
    *                      specification unloaded data in HFP      *
    *                      format instead of BFP format            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    UNLOAD FLOAT IEEE was incorrectly unloading floating point
    data in hexadecimal floating point (HFP) format instead of
    binary floating point (BFP) format when a field specification
    was not used. The UNLOAD without a field specification was not
    taking into account that the FLOAT IEEE option was being used,
    thus did not perform any data conversions.
    

Problem conclusion

  • UNLOAD has been changed to unload data using the correct format
    for the no field-specification cases when using FLOAT IEEE
    option.
