Error description

  • DB2BATCH returns wrong fraction part for TIMESTAMP values.
    
    Following steps will reproduce the issue:
    
    create table t (testno INTEGER , testtime TIMESTAMP );
    insert into t values ( 1 , '2011-04-01 00:00:01.000001' );
    insert into t values ( 2 , '2011-04-01 00:00:01.000010' );
    insert into t values ( 3 , '2011-04-01 00:00:01.000123' );
    insert into t values ( 4 , '2011-04-01 00:00:01.001234' );
    select * from t order by testtime asc ;
    
    
    Output when running SELECT with db2 clp is correct:
    
    TESTNO      TESTTIME
    ----------- --------------------------
              1 2011-04-01-00.00.01.000001
              2 2011-04-01-00.00.01.000010
              3 2011-04-01-00.00.01.000123
              4 2011-04-01-00.00.01.001234
    
    
    But running db2batch -d sample -f b.sql (contains "select * from
    t order by testtime asc ;"):
    
    * SQL Statement Number 1:
    select * from t order by testtime asc ;
    
    TESTNO      TESTTIME
    ----------- --------------------------
              1 2011-04-01 00:00:01.001000
              2 2011-04-01 00:00:01.010000
              3 2011-04-01 00:00:01.123000
              4 2011-04-01 00:00:01.1234000
