As you don't say which version of OS/400 you are running on, I would wager
that it's V4R2 or above. If this is the case, have you got the most recent
database group PTF's applied? Take a look at APAR II11801 - 'SSA BPCS on
the AS/400 required PTF list for V4R2/V4R3/V4R4/V4R5' - for details of
which PTF to order and how to determine which version of the Database Group
you currently have. The APAR also contains details of some individual PTF's
you may require.
The reason for most of the problems is that V6 BPCS makes extensive use of
SQL, and IBM, in an effort to improve performance, 'tweaked' some of the
SQL internals on V4R2 and above. The trouble is that it adversely affects a
situation which often occurs in the SQL in BPCS. The PTF's do fix the
problem, but they aren't the best publicised. Let's hope they are
integrated into V5R1!
