I'm on V5R2 and if I try to use the LIKE predicate on a numeric field, I get the same error message, === Marshall Dunbar DPS, Inc. marshall@xxxxxxxxxxx direct:(828)635-5561 main office:(317)574-4300 (800)654-4689 ==== Bruce Jin <brucej@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent by: java400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx 12/06/2005 04:28 PM Please respond to Java Programming on and around the iSeries / AS400 <java400-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx> To Java Programming on and around the iSeries / AS400 <java400-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx> cc Subject "select * from myfile where cusno like '1%' " fails on V5R3 This is an odd thing on V5R3. If cusno is a numeric field then this query will fail: select * from myfile where cusno like '1%' STRSQL complains: "Operand not valid in LIKE predicate". We will have to cast numeric field to character to resolve this. It is odd because same query works on V5R2. (It also works in MySQL and MS SQL server). Could you STRSQL on your box and verify this? Thanks.
