DB2 - Problem description

Problem IC72048 Status: Closed

DB2 LOAD ZONEDDECIMAL OPTION ADDS SUPPORT FOR 0X3 AND 0X7 FOR POSITIVE AND
NEGATIVE HALF-BYTE SIGN VALUES RESPECTIVELY

product:
DB2 FOR LUW / DB2FORLUW / 950 - DB2
Problem description:
Currently, DB2 LOAD's zoneddecimal option only supports the 
following half-byte sign values: 
 
+ = 0xC 0xA 0xE 0xF 
- = 0xD 0xB 
 
But in ASCII-encoded environment, a zoned decimal number uses 
0x3 and 0x7 for positive and negative half-byte sign values 
respectively.  This APAR adds support for 0x3 and 0x7 to support 
such encoding.
