The iSeries is managed elsewhere and they claim there is no problem because it works using DB2 connect and Operations Navigator. I had always thought these products used APPC not ODBC. Is this correct?
- DB2 connect indeed uses a different approach then ODBC
- Navigator works with JDBC (and not ODBC)
- Sometimes it is recommended to upgrade the ODBCdriver when changes occur on the iSeries. (I assume you use ODBC driver from iSeries access).
- Try to "play" with dates format (in the ODBC configuration use tab server -> advanced)
