Error when importing data in DB2 using BOOLEAN data type

[This topic is migrated from our old forums. The original author name has been removed]

When importing data into DB2 using the "Import table data" wizard and "New database table" option enabled, the presence of a BOOLEAN data type in the generated SQL code causes the following error: Create Table failed: A "BOOLEAN" data type is not supported in the context where it is being used.. SQLCODE=-20441, SQLSTATE=428H2, DRIVER=4.13.127 Apparently DB2 does not support the BOOLEAN data type for table columns. The BOOLEAN type is a DB2 built-in data type that can only be used as the data type of: - A local variable in a compound SQL (compiled) statement - A parameter of an SQL routine - The returns type of an SQL function - A global variable Product: DbVisualizer Personal 8.0.12 Build: #1776 (2012/11/27 10:13) Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM Java Version: 1.7.0_09 Java Vendor: Oracle Corporation OS Name: Windows XP OS Arch: x86 OS Version: 5.1

Re: Error when importing data in DB2 using BOOLEAN data type
Hi Christos, Thanks for reporting this. We will look into removing BOOLEAN, and possibly other types that cannot be used for columns, from the Data Type list. As a work-around, you can manually change BOOLEAN to SMALLINT when defining the columns for the table. Best Regards, Hans
