Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 2800 to 2830
Informix Error Code -2800 The first line of the specification must be the keyword database followed by the database name, or the FORMONLY keyword (4GL only). An optional WITHOUT NULL INPUT may also follow.
Aside from comment lines, a form specification must begin by naming a database. Review the file for punctuation and spelling errors. Refer to the reference manual for this product for the options that are allowed in the DATABASE statement. (Current products do not use this message. You might encounter it with Version 4.0 or earlier products.)
Informix Error Code -2810 The name name is not an existing database name.
This name, which was found in the DATABASE statement at the start of the form specification, is not a database that can be found. If you are using INFORMIX-SE, the database must reside either in the current directory or in a directory that the DBPATH environment variable names.
Informix Error Code -2811 The temporary table table-name could not be opened for writing.
The application is attempting to create a temporary table in the database or some other temporary file but received an error code from the database server. The most probable cause is a lack of disk space. Look for other error messages, including operating-system messages, that might give more information.
Informix Error Code -2812 The temporary table table-name could not be read.
The application created and filled a temporary table in the database or created and filled some other temporary file, but when it tried to read rows from it, it received an error code from the database server. Probably a hardware failure occurred. Look for other error messages, including operating-system messages, that might give more information.
Informix Error Code -2820 The label name between brackets is incorrectly given or the label is missing.
In this line of the SCREEN section of a form specification, square brackets indicate a field. The brackets should contain a simple name. Instead, they contain spaces or an invalid name. Review the punctuation of the line to make sure that the brackets contain only a simple identifier.
Informix Error Code -2830 A left square bracket has been found on this line, with no right square bracket to match it.
A screen field cannot span lines. Review the SCREEN section to make sure all fields are properly marked. To create a multiline field, mark off multiple complete fields all with the same field tag.

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.
