One of riskes using NUMBER datatype!

I found a interesting issue a NUMBER datatype on DB2.
When you also set up oracle mode (like db2_compatibility_set = ORA (or FFF)) in the DB2 9.7, in addition, you may happen to use NUMBER data type.
Especially you might use the default mode of "NUMBER" It can be automatically changed to decfloat type. Who cares?
I was about to find one funny thing when I use the default NUMBER type.
It would be divided into 0 !!

Look the flowing example!

1. check the version

select VERSIONNUMBER from sysibm.sysversions


2. create a sample table and then try insert some numbers;

create table d1(c1 number) ;

insert into d1 values(10) ;

3. Divide them into 0!! Yes. it is working!

update d1 set c1=c1/0

Warnings: --->
DECFLOAT exception "DIVISION BY ZERO" has occurred during "DIVISION" operation.

4. select the table and then you face with the funny result!

select * from d1

>[Error] Script lines: 1-2 --------------------------
DB2 SQL error: SQLCODE: -304, SQLSTATE: , SQLERRMC: null
Message: A value cannot be assigned to a host variable because the value is not within the range of the host variable's data type.

select char(c1) from d1


Yes. You can also test this fun situation, but I never hope this kinds of the result. Anyway, I also simply solve this problem using NUMBER (p,s) because it can convert decimal type !!

Hi All,

The above article focusses on Oracle compatibilty introduced in DB2 9.7 , and portrays how easy it is to port your Oracle app in days to DB2 rather than months . Hope this helps you :)

Hi Anil!!
I have gone through your article on the latest IBM data management "SQL Compatibilty in DB2". It was a nice informative post that u had made. I wish you could explain more about the new isolation level(Currently Commited) in detail for 9.7. Cheers!!!
