Hi I have a column defined in DB2 table as

Code:
STPAP-DATA-AREA.       
49 STPAP-DATA-AREA-LEN
   PIC S9(4) USAGE COMP
49 STPAP-DATA-AREA-TEXT
   PIC X(32652).     


When I try inserting through a query , Data gets truncated and maximum length of data its inserting is of 6448 bytes. Please suggest how can I pass higher length data to this field.

PIC 9(4) COMP can hold a maximum value of 9999 due to "decimal truncation" for COMP/COMP-4/BINARY fields.

PIC 9(4) COMP-5 can hold a maximum value of 64k-1 due to "binary truncation" (truncation to field size) for COMP-5 fields.

All USAGE COMP/COMP-4/BINARY fields can be automatically changed to COMP-5 without further coding by specifying compiler option TRUNC(BIN), but you definitely don't want to do that due to the need to re-test everything.

So, change you definition from COMP to COMP-5 and you should be good-to-go.

Remember decimal vs binary truncation always. If your field-size is limited (you can't make it bigger, because it is someone else's definition) and you need more than the PICture number of digits, make it COMP-5.

So, make it COMP-5.
