Reply with quote

we have a requirement to load data from a flat file to a DB2 table.The table has an amount field which is declared as DECIMAL(15,2).

We are using the LOAD utility for this.

The syntax in the load that we are using is:
POSITION(61:76) DECIMAL

The data in the file is something like this:
1234567890111.12(13 integers followed by decimal point and 2 decimals)

When this is run it gives a '04' error the description being:
04 an input packed decimal field was in error

There is either an error in the input data format in the file or the way the
load syntax is written.

Kindly let me know if there is a fix for this.

Try POSITION(61:76) DECIMAL external(16,02)
