Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 838 to 842


Informix Error Code -838 A line in the load file is too long.
Each line of the input file to LOAD must be read into storage in full to be processed. INFORMIX-SQL resizes its memory buffer as required to hold the current line. But in this case, it was not able to allocate a large enough buffer. This error is most likely when the load file contains TEXT or BYTE data values or very large CHAR values. All of the values for one row must be contained in one line of the file. If you cannot rerun the program with more memory available, modify the input file to have fewer or shorter values in each row. Or use the dbload utility to try to load the file.

Informix Error Code -839 Table not found.
You specified the name of a table that does not exist in the current database. Review the spelling of the table name, and check that you are using the correct database. Refer to the discussion of error -310 for a way to display all table names.
Informix Error Code -840 Name is too long.
Names of databases, reports, forms, and other files must be 10 characters or shorter. Select a new, shorter name, and repeat this operation. In DOS systems, filenames can be a maximum of 8 characters plus a 3-character extension.

Informix Error Code -841 Name must start with a letter or “_” and contain letters, digits, or “_”.
Names of databases, reports, forms, and other files must conform to this rule. Repeat this operation with a name that conforms to the rule. Beginning with Version 6.0, the name of the following identifiers, as well as server and cursor names, can begin with an underscore: column, connection, constraint, database, index, procedure, synonym, table, trigger, and view.
Informix Error Code -842 Cannot read temp file.
INFORMIX-SQL created a temporary file; now it is trying to read back the temporary file. However, it received an unexpected operating-system return code. Possibly you or another user removed the file, or possibly a hardware error occurred.

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.
