Symptoms


Using the Oracle Database Gateway for ODBC (DG4ODBC) 11.2.0.x a select from a column defined as GRAPHIC  length of 5 with CCSID 13488 on an AS400 defined as CCSID 37 fails to retain the original column length.
Create a table on the AS400 as follows -

CREATE TABLE PRODDTA9.F1201 (
FACO GRAPHIC(5) CCSID 13488 DEFAULT NULL ,
FANUMB NUMERIC(8, 0) DEFAULT NULL ,
FAAPID GRAPHIC(12) CCSID 13488 DEFAULT NULL ,
FAAAID NUMERIC(8, 0) DEFAULT NULL ,
FAASID GRAPHIC(25) CCSID 13488 DEFAULT NULL ,
.......)
select * from f1201@jde_crpdta
FACO            FANUMB                 FAAPID                               FAAAID                 FAASID                                                                      FASEQ
