DB2 z/OS V8 -> 10 Migration question - a.k.a. am I being stupid? - now with added RE
ok - ignoring the weird report 25 for now....has anyone out there in
LISTSERV world actually attempted to run the DSNTXTA REXX from the V8 DB2
CLIST library ??? My REXX skills are not exactly brilliant but even I
know that defining a subroutine as PROCEDURE is *not* good for
variables...and FLOAT columns also have different lengths depending on
whether they are created as REAL aka FLOAT(1-21) or DOUBLE aka FLOAT(22 -
53)

Has anyone else been bashing their head or am I alone in the Matrix???

Hi Roy

Something in (more or less) detail:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/dzichelp/v2r2/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2z10.doc.char/db2z_drdacharparmuni.htm


and maybe this description (search in this web page the string 'UTF':

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/dzichelp/v2r2/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2z10.doc.inst/db2z_relincompatapplsqlfromv9.htm


I think if you dig more in this manuals you *could* find some answer. For
sure if there's any IBMer suggesting some paper/manual she/he'd be
welcome

Just my 10 cents
