It is definitely important to check the Info APAR often, as it is updated
whenever a new issue is discovered by the SSA GT or IBM Support Centers.
This is a changeable document.

Just to clarify the below note, as the word conversion is used and in this
case, it does not refer to any BPCS file data conversion.

The IBM PTF mentioned covers a case where some logical files did not convert
from an older OS/400 release format into the V5R1 DB2 file format, causing
various SQL errors when running BPCS - this could happen in either Mixed
Mode or Client/Server releases of V6 or V8. The PTF corrects the operating
system database conversion issue when upgrading your OS/400 release to V5R1.
