    Unanswered: strang warning on export

    Hi All,
    Here are the facts. If I telnet to my DB server, connect to database1 and export any table, I receive warning msg for each varchar column. For example,
    SQL3132W The character data in column "SUBJECT" will be truncated to size

    The column is defined as varchar(128).

    Also, DESCRIBE TABLE does display values under "Type name". Instead, values from "Length", "Scale" and "Nulls" (they are right to "Type nmae") are shifted to the position under "Type name".

    If I connect to datanase2 in the same instance, everything is normal.

    If I connect to database1 remotely, everything is normal.

    I can not figure out what the problem is.
    Any advice is highly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thank you for advice. It still does the same.

    DB2 level:
    "DB2 v8.1.0.58", "s040914", "MI00093", and FixPak "6"

    OS level:
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 6)
    Kernel 2.4.21-32.ELsmp on an i686

    The only difference between database1 and database2 is the code set. database1 (with error) is using ISO8859-1, while database2 (without error) is using UTF-8. I tried to set profile variable DB2CODEPAGE=819 (corresponding to ISO8859-1), it still didn't work.
