All these boxes are in Europe (Germany, Poland, Netherlands, etc.).
That's as good an idea as I've had. I'll try it.
Thanks very much

Perhaps I have the solution if one of the failing boxes is in Europe.

Please remember that we use , (comma) as a decimal separator and not .
(dot)

Therefore always add a blank between the digits like this:

OUT PGMTYPE NUMERIC(1 , 0),

and not this:

OUT PGMTYPE NUMERIC(1,0),

otherwise it will be interpreted as a float with the value of 1.0 and I
doubt this was the intention of the parameter length.

this i by the way also true for all function linke i.e.

substr(a,1,2)

will not work on european system and need to be written as

substr(a,1 , 2)

I'm guessing the first error is because the procedure doesn't exist yet.
Why the second error when it works so well elsewhere? Here's a
strange idea. Maybe that lpar uses a different decimal character.
Some countries on the other side of the pond use a comma for a decimal
point. This is why many people will add a space and use NUMERIC(X, Y)
Instead of
NUMERIC(X,Y)
Why it craps out on position 21 where the ( is could just be confusion.
But the message did say it was looking for a right parenthesis or a comma.
Maybe on this lpar that comma was ignored as a decimal point instead?
Add the space and see if it helps.

Sorry.
Here's the SQL source...

DROP PROCEDURE QGPL/LICKTYSPLT;
CREATE PROCEDURE QGPL/LICKTYSPLT (
IN USERID CHAR(10),
IN ACCESSCODE CHAR(80),
OUT PGMTYPE NUMERIC(1,0),
OUT RETURN NUMERIC(2,0) )
LANGUAGE RPGLE
SPECIFIC QGPL/LICKTYSPLT
NOT DETERMINISTIC
READS SQL DATA
EXTERNAL NAME 'LS/LICKTYSPLT'

And here's the error...
SQL0204 20 1 Position 1 LICKTYSPLT in QGPL type *N not found.
SQL0104 30 5 Position 21 Token ( was not valid. Valid tokens: )

This is a text only list.
Therefore we don't see the sql statement nor the message.

Hi,



We have an SQL statement that is run by an RUNSQLSTM at our client's
IBM i servers. It runs fine on 4 out of 6 of their servers. The
failures say it's a syntax error.

Here's the SQL source.



And here's the error.





I'm at a loss what's wrong here. It works on 4 out of 6 servers, all
at
v7r2
and all at same PTF level, and it works here on v5r4, v7r1, and v7r3.



Here's the RUNSQLSTM in use.

RUNSQLSTM SRCFILE(INSTFRLIB/QSQLTXT) +

SRCMBR(LICKTYSPLT) COMMIT(*NONE) +

ERRLVL(20) DBGVIEW(*LIST) +

CLOSQLCSR(*ENDMOD) USRPRF(*OWNER) +

DYNUSRPRF(*OWNER)

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.



Kind Regards,



Thomas Garvey
