ERROR: [SQL0183] Result of
date or timestamp expression not valid.

Any body ever seen this error?  Trying to select data from an as/400
logical access path on a solaris or win98 machine gives this error.  The
data in the source file is fine, and I get results for well over 100
rows of data before the error occurs, there are three date fields in the
source file and not selecting of the dates allows the program to run
slightly longer before error occurs.
The error message states that you are performing a arithmetic function that is
creating an invalid date or timestamp.  The most likely culprit is trying to
subtract one or more days from a date field with '01-01-0001'.  Many questions
come to mind quickly:

1. Are you using L-dates or regular old YYMMDD or CCYYMMDD fields?
2. What date arithmetic are you performing
