In Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010, you use the Managed Provider for DB2 to call a stored procedure in order to insert GRAPHIC data as parameter into a DB2-defined GRAPHIC column. However, when the size of the data to be inserted is smaller than the size of the defined GRAPHIC column, the inserted data is padded either with Null values or with random data.


This issue is caused by an incorrect handling of the parameter.


The fix that resolves this problem is included in Cumulative Update 10 for Host Integration Server 2010.
