Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 4536 to 4556
Informix Error Code -4536 Database open failed.
The Application Builder could not open the database. A network failure, INFORMIX-NET failure, or an incorrect value in the DBPATH environment variable could cause this error. Check the DBPATH setting, and run SETNET. Also verify that the UNIX host is functioning correctly.
Informix Error Code -4538 No database name has been given.
The Application Builder attempted to execute an OPEN DATABASE command without specifying the name of the database. Check the “database=…” line in your informix.ini file. If you want to use the default database, set the line to “database=syspg4gl”.
Informix Error Code -4542 Attempt to upgrade the design database failed.
The Application Builder attempted to upgrade an older style database from INFORMIX-4GL to a new style that uses NewEra failed. This process involves creating a series of new tables and modifying and moving the data.
The error might occur because of lack of permissions. The owner of the database should perform the upgrade.
The error could be due to a full disk. The upgrade does not erase old information until it has been written and verified, and then only if requested. The amount of free space that an upgrade requires is approximately equal to the amount that the older database uses.
Informix Error Code -4543 Invalid delimiter. Do not use ‘\\’, hex digits (0-9, A-F, a-f), or space.
Use a delimiter other than any of the 22 forbidden symbols that are listed here.
-4555 Variable size cannot exceed 65535 bytes.
You have attempted to create a variable whose total size exceeds 65535. Arrays can consume space more quickly than you might notice. A simple array A[100,100] of CHAR(6) would consume 10,000 x 7 – 70,000 bytes.
Informix Error Code -4556 Object size cannot exceed 65535 bytes.
