Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 467 to 472


Informix Error Code -467 Indicator object is missing.
This program was compiled with the -icheck flag, and the current SQL statement did return a truncated or null value, for which an indicator would normally be set, to a host variable for which no indicator variable was specified. Revise the program to use indicator variables.
Informix Error Code -468 Cannot obtain user id from system: unable to start database server.
Your application is trying to open communications to a database server. As part of this action, it has to read your user ID from the system password file, and it failed to do this. Look for operating-system error messages that might give more specific information. Consult with a system administrator to ensure that the file of user IDs is readable to all users.

Informix Error Code -469 This descriptor does not exist.
The name of the system descriptor area that is specified does not exist in the list of system descriptor areas, so it has not been allocated. You must execute the ALLOCATE DESCRIPTOR statement to allocate this descriptor name before you use it.
Informix Error Code -470 The value of occurrence must be greater than 0.
If you include the WITH MAX occurrences clause in the ALLOCATE DESCRIPTOR statement, you must specify a value of occurrences that is greater than zero. Change the value of occurrences to a positive integer, and execute the ALLOCATE DESCRIPTOR statement again.

Informix Error Code -471 An invalid descriptor name has been used.
This error is generated if the name of the SQL descriptor is either an empty string or an uninitialized host variable. Descriptor names follow the same naming rules as identifiers. Check the name of the descriptor, and verify that it has been set with the SET DESCRIPTOR statement, allocated with the ALLOCATE DESCRIPTOR statement, or otherwise initialized.
Informix Error Code -472 Occurrence value is out of range.
Change the value of the COUNT statement so that it is less than or equal to the occurrences and greater than zero, and try again.

Above are list of Informix Error Messages and Errors Codes or Status Codes or Exit Codes along with Error and Warning messages received while performing certain operation against Informix applications or related products.

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.
