get the same error message,

Java Programming on and around the iSeries / AS400 

"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?
