Besides Rob's comment about the ORDER BY clause, I seem to remember that in
7.1 the query optimizer can make changes in real-time to the execution plan,
while the SQL is running. IIRC, this is called Adaptive Query Processing
(ADP). I wonder if this makes less valid the storing of the access plan
along with the program object?

Did you recompile your program on V7?


Did you run your program after moving to V7 and before executing

Yes - several times.

I assume the access plan was removed from the program object during the
internal conversion for V7 and the program was not yet run to get the
new/updated version of the access plan stored.

No conversion. Program was compiled from source on V7

Access plans get stored within the program objects at compile time and
be updated with the first execution (or as soon as the stored access plan
must be updated).

Yup - that's the theory.

IMHO access plans stored within a program object are no longer important.
For SQL statements executed with the SQE access plans stored within the
plan cache are validated. If there is no access plan within the SQE plan
cache the access plan stored within the program object will be valided.
there is no access plan found within the program object, a new access
will be created.

Good point - but I'd still like to know why it happens.

BTW access plans for dynamic SQL are never stored within the program

Yep - but this is not dynamic - it is static.
