Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 23759 to 23762


Informix Error Code -23759 None of the DATAFILES strings name valid data files.
An error occurred when the database server tried to expand the DATAFILES entries in an INSERT or SELECT statement for an external table. No valid filenames were found in the DATAFILES entries.
Examine the external tables entry, drop the external table, and reissue a corrected CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE statement.

Informix Error Code -23760 File name is too long (file_name).
The name of the file in the external table is too long (after expanding all the file macros). Check to see that the full path name of the file is less than 257 characters long.

Informix Error Code -23761 Cannot select from multiple external tables.
Only one external table can be used in a select query. For unions, each union contributor can have one external table. External tables are allowed as participants in joins and subqueries along with other database tables.
Check that the FROM clause contains only one external table.
Informix Error Code -23762 Null string longer than external column length or of bad format string.
The CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE statement has a column with invalid NULL “null-string” syntax. The NULL string for this column is longer than the external column length declared or is not a recognized format for the external type. If “null-string” is used to declare a NULL on a PACKED or ZONED decimal, it must conform to the formats allowed. BINARY external types must contain valid numeric values.
Check the CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE statement to make sure that the NULL “null-string” length agrees with the size and format defined for the external column type.
