        Subject:        Encoded Vector Index error

Hi People,

I have a FILEA with 8,178 records, which I attempted to copy into FILEB, a
brand new empty file which happened to have an EVI created over it, on a 
character field containing last names. I got the following error:

 Failure for device or member FILEB file FILEB in library LIBX.

Checking the job log, I found these messages:

 The maximum number of unique encoded vector index values has been
   exceeded for data space index FILEBEVI FILEBEVI.
 Pointer not set for location referenced.
 Function check. MCH3601 unmonitored by QDBSIGEX at statement *N,
   instruction X'02D3'.

As a workaround, I deleted FILEBEVI, copied the records, then created
FILEBEVI again with no problems.

Is there a PTF for this (this is on NetShare, V4R4, don't know the PTF
level)? Or am I missing something?
