Main Title
Abstract: DB2 for z/OS V8 and V9 potential loss of data during update of
fixed length rows.

Description:
A defect was introduced by APAR PK63401. If either PTF UK35464 or
UK35465 is applied, then a potential loss of data can occur in a DB2 V8
or DB2 V9 environment. The loss may occur in a fixed length row update
where the length of updated data is greater than 256 bytes. A fixed
length table is one that does not contain any VARCHAR, LONG VARCHAR or
ROWID columns. The exposure exists only if subject table space or
partition is not compressed, and no EDIT procedures exists on the table.
Apar PK66997 has been created to resolve this problem. Please refer to
the APAR text for further details.


Recommended Actions: Remove PTFs UK35464 or UK35465 or apply the
solution for PK66997.
