Informix Error Code -1275 Invalid field width or precision in datetime or interval format string.
The field width or precision in DATETIME or INTERVAL format specification must make sense. The field width must be a decimal number, with a leading zero or minus ( – ) sign. If a precision specification is present, it must also be decimal, separated from the field-width specification by a period.
