BUG #: 58503 (SQLBUG_70)
Expand all | Collapse all


When performing synchronization against a DB2 subscriber, if the table being replicated contains a numeric column, the distribution agent may fail with the following error message:
A SQL error has occurred. Please consult the documentation for your specific DB2 version for a description of the associated Native Error and SQL State. SQLSTATE: 42601, SQLCODE: -104.


This behavior is caused by the binding of binary data to the OLE DB data type DBTYPE_NUMERIC or DBTYPE_DECIMAL.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
