change of type of a index field
« on: January 03, 2022, 12:45:23 PM »

I have the ondemand server on Z/OS and use the windows client to access data. We run version 10.5.0.

In one of the application groups one of the index fields is defined as integer - but now that field is having a value that is to big for an integer - it is over 220000000000 - so the arsload ends with an ARS1125E error.

I made a test where I made a new APG where the field is Big int - and then I have added a new field to the folder, so the folder now have 2 columns with almost the same name - and one is used for the documents from the APG with the integer and one is for the APG with the Big integer - but has anyone another suggestion to solve the issue?

I tried to attach a screen shot of the folder - but i couldn't get it to work ...

Yeah, this isn't an easily solvable issue.  You'd normally copy the app group, change the field type to BigInt, then add the new App Group to the folder definition - but I don't think you can map a 'bigint' AppGroup field to an 'integer' folder field.

This might be a good Enhancement request.  I've also seem this problem when trying to combine AppGroups that are copies, where one of the date fields is a standard 'date' field, and the other is a 'date/time' field.
