Error Message[DataDirect][ODBC DB2 Wire Protocol driver]Datetime field overflow. Error in parameter 1. {22008}
Defect Number
Enhancement Number
Column TIMESTAMPCOL was described with ColumnSize 26, but was incorrectly bound with ColumnSize 19.  The driver used to insert the data correctly in spite of the incorrect binding, but after the fix for defect DD00053825 in June, 2010, the driver enforces binding with the correct ColumnSize. This change will affect all drivers.

Change the application to bind the timestamp with the correct ColumnSize.


Set WorkArounds2=2 in the data source.

WorkArounds2=2. Enabling this option causes the driver to ignore the ColumnSize/DecimalDigits specified by the application and use the database defaults instead. Some applications incorrectly specify the ColumnSize/DecimalDigits when binding timestamp parameters.
