Reply with quote


We are using FAST UNLOAD for unloading the data from tables. UNLOAD card is having OUTPUT-FORMAT DSNTIAUL. Could anybody please help us to know what should be the INPUT-FORMAT while using the FASTLOAD.

Out FASTLOADs are failing either with

1) Saying Column data type conversion issue
2) or Records are getting discarded.

It will be of great help fi anybody can share the inputs here

This is what it say's. Did you follow ?
PFL INPUT-FORMAT UNLOAD is compatible with CA Fast Unload for DB2 for z/OS (PFU) where OUTPUT-FORMAT LOAD was specified during the unload. If PFU was executed with a different OUTPUT-FORMAT then use INPUT-FORMAT SEQ on the PFL execution.

The source table OBID is written into the unload file during the PFU unload process when OUTPUT-FORMAT LOAD is specified.
To ensure data integrity, PFL verifies that the OBID in the input file is the same as the target table to be loaded. If the source and target tables do not have the same OBID, then the OBID parm may be used during the PFL execution to specify the source table OBID present in the input file.

The source and target table DDL must be identical, data conversion is not allowed with INPUT-FORMAT UNLOAD.
