Please clarify the DB2 SQL code -805(Reason Code 3) and -818(Timestamp Mismatch)

Hi David,

Can you please clarify my query on Db2 SQL code -805(Reason Code 3) and -818(Time stamp mismatch). In IBM Manual i could see both the codes are used for same content(Consistancy Token). But one is Associated to PACKAGE and other one is Assocated with PLAN.To Execute a Program that involves DB2 we anyway requires a PLAN.Please let me know on what occasions these two SQLcodes may occur.
