There is a DECIMAL(6,0) db2 column whose cobol dclgen
variable is S9(6)V COMP-3. When trying to use update query on this column thru cob-db2 pgm, i get -310 sqlcode error.

I am taking the input from a CICS map variable declared PICIN=9(4). When i enter 0045 in the cics screen, the symbolic map variable 9(4) contains correct value 0045 only when displayed in the CEEMSG. I even tried moving the symbolic map variable to a temporary COMP-3 variable instead of the dclgen variable and used it as host variable in the update query, but still same prob.

Any solution to this?

Hello,

Suggest you post the host variable defnition, the "temporary" variable definition, the problem sql statement, and the code to move the data from one place to the host variable (assuming this is an insert or update).

Map variable GAI PIC 9(04)
Screen Input
Code:

GA CODE         :  0088     


Host variable from DCLGEN
10 HV-GA PIC S9(6)V USAGE COMP-3.

Temporary variable
01 WS-TEMP PIC S9(06)V COMP-3.

MOVE GAI TO HV-GA
MOVE GAI TO WS-TEMP

EXEC SQL
UPDATE RESULTTB
SET GA = :WS-TEMP
WHERE ID = :HV-ID
END-EXEC.

I have used both HV-GA and also WS-TEMP as host variables.

Can you show the 01 level of DCLGEN variable declaration. Did you try to display the host variable value before and after the update.

Another wierd observation,

There is another column CHAR(10) which we are updating using the query

Code:

EXEC SQL
   UPDATE RESULTTB
       SET RESULT = 'GOOD' 
       WHERE ID = :HV-ID
END-EXEC.


Even this is giving the -310 error only.

Seems pretty obvious: HV_ID contains garbage.

And it seems pretty obvious that an assumption was made on HV-ID containing garbage. icon_wink.gif

Did you try to do any numeric test?

Hello,

Suggest you post the value of :HV-ID in hex.

I wonder why people keep on questioning db2/sql judgement about what is <good> and what is <bad>

what is important is not what the TS thinks/believes but what DB2/SQL wants icon_cool.gif

Not really an assumption. It is an hypothesis based on the evidence presented. And a good one too. HV-ID is the next logical thing to check.
