[Oracle][ODBC DB2 Wire Protocol driver][UDB DB2 for OS/390 and z/OS]PREPARE
STRING INCLUDES PARAMETER MARKERS AS OPERAND OF SAME OPERATOR.
ORA-02063: preceding 2 lines from GTW
ORA-02063: preceding 3 lines from DEV11
ORA-02063: preceding 4 lines from GTW
The VB application passes the bind variables as a VARCHAR datatype.
