Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 531 to 535


Informix Error Code -531 Duplicate column column-name exists in view.
This CREATE VIEW statement gives a list of column names, and at least one of them appears twice in the list. Review the list of column names, and make sure that each appears only once.
Informix Error Code -532 Cannot alter temporary table table-name.
The table shown is only a temporary table. It will vanish when this session ends. Such tables cannot be altered. To alter the shape of the table, simply drop it, and re-create it.

Informix Error Code -533 Extent size too small, minimum size is number k.
The size that is specified for a disk extent (either the EXTENT SIZE or the NEXT SIZE clause) must be at least four times the disk page size, as shown. Generally, set EXTENT SIZE large enough to hold all of the rows as you initially estimate them, and set NEXT SIZE at an eighth or a quarter of that.
Informix Error Code -534 Could not insert new row into table, table is locked.
Database servers at Version 4.0 and later do not return this error. In earlier versions, its meaning is the same as error -271 with ISAM error code -113. Roll back the current transaction, and run it again when the table has been unlocked.

Informix Error Code -534 Cannot open EXPLAIN output file.
The statement SET EXPLAIN ON has been executed, and the database server is trying to open the file sqexplain.out in the current working directory. An operating-system error of some kind prevents it. See the ISAM error code for more information. Look for operating-system error messages that might give more detail. Likely problems include a lack of write permissions in the current directory and a full disk. This error message appears beginning with Version 4.1.
Informix Error Code -535 Already in transaction.
This BEGIN WORK statement is redundant; a transaction is already in progress. If this is a program, review its logic to make sure it has not accidentally failed to end the previous transaction.

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.
