Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 223 to 227
Informix Error Code -223 Duplicate table name table-name in the FROM clause.
The table name appears twice in the list that follows the word FROM. Review the statement to see if you intended to name some other table the second time. If you intended to join a table to itself, use a table alias for the second and subsequent instances of the table. The following example shows one way to find customers with the same last name:
SELECT main.lname, main.customer_num, sub.customer_num FROM customer main, customer sub WHERE main.lname = sub.lname AND main.rowid != sub.rowid
When you use table aliases (the words main and sub in the example), the table may be selected from two or more times.
Informix Error Code -224 Cannot open transaction log file.
The database server cannot open the file in which transaction-log entries are made. No transactions can start until this file is repaired. (In an ANSI-compliant database, nothing can be done; in other databases, only queries can be made.) Report this problem to the database server administrator. For INFORMIX-SE database servers, check the accompanying ISAM error code, and look for operating-system error messages that might give more information. A START DATABASE statement specifies the path to the log file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-create it as an empty file. If the path has changed, you can issue a new START DATABASE statement to redefine it.
Informix Error Code -225 Cannot create file for system catalog table-name.
The database server is trying to create one of the tables for the system catalog, probably as part of a CREATE DATABASE statement. A problem with the host operating system prevents it. Check the accompanying ISAM error code for more information, and look for operating-system error messages. A shortage of disk space or operating-system file-access permission problems probably caused this error.
Informix Error Code -226 Cannot create index for system catalog table-name.
The database server is trying to create one of the tables for the system catalog, probably as part of a CREATE DATABASE statement. It created the table, but a problem with the host operating system prevents it from making an index. Check the accompanying ISAM error code for more information, and look for operating-system error messages. Insufficient disk space probably caused this error.
Informix Error Code -227 DDL operations on ROWID prohibited.
This statement attempts to change the column named ROWID. That column is a part of every table except a fragmented table. You can select it with a SELECT statement and compare it in a WHERE clause, but you cannot alter it with a DDL statement.

What are Informix Error Messages?
All Informix messages returned by the Informix server are assigned an error code.
In general, each Informix error contains the following information:
• The Informix Error Code or Informix Error status
• The message text. This text is usually returned with the Error code. Some messages employ word substitution, where the word substituted represents the system-replacement of a term more specific to the occurrence.
• An explanation of how the error may have occurred.
