Informix Error Code -1231 Cannot seek within message file.
The application is trying to look up a message text in a message file but receives an error code when it tries to position within the file. This situation indicates some problem with the file itself; possibly it has been corrupted or truncated. Reinstall all files of type .iem from the distribution materials. If you have modified the user-message file, 4glusr.msg, recompile it as well.
Informix Error Code -1232 Message buffer too small.
4GL is reading a message text from a compiled message file but cannot resize the buffer to be large enough to hold the complete message. This situation might indicate a critical shortage of data space, but more probably it indicates a corrupted or invalid message file. Reinstall all files of type .iem from the distribution materials. If you have modified the user-message file, 4glusr.msg, recompile it as well.

Informix Error Code -1235 Character host variable is too short for the data.
In an ESQL/C program, the program has attempted to fetch a column value into a host variable that is not large enough. Use the DESCRIBE command to find out the sizes of column values.
If this error arises in a 4GL program, please note all circumstances and contact Informix Technical Support.
Informix Error Code -1236 Bad era date.
The era name or the era offset that is given in the input string is invalid or has not been entered in the required format. Check that the era name and offset are valid and in the proper order in the input string. Check the format against the value of DBTIME, DBDATE, or the format string passed to the SQL API function, whichever is appropriate.
Informix Error Code -1237 Bad era name.
The date format requires an era name, but no name that matches the era names in the GLS locale could be found in the input string. Check that you are using the correct locale and that you entered the era name correctly.
