The odbc connection is connecting to the IBMi (formerly known as iSeries, As400) and pulling back “physical files”/”table names”, but not pulling back column names. The errors from UPS World Ship were “The selected import/export map is no longer valid because the column names in the external database have changed.” “Import data source not valid.”
Ways to try and resolve this issue
- Install the latest IBM i Access v7.1 windows client to get the latest ODBC driver.
- Install the latest service pack for IBM i Access (SI55797_64a.exe at the time of this writing)
- Delete QGPL/QZDAPKG
- RCLDBXREF OPTION(*CHECK) if there is a problem try RCLDBXREF OPTION(*FIX). If that doesn’t work try RCLSTG SELECT(*DBXREF) when the system can be put into a restricted state and the system can be down for a bit.
