XML-CODE of 417 in 'XML GENERATE' function

XML-CODE of 417 in 'XML GENERATE' function

XML-CODE of 417 in 'XML GENERATE' function

I've got a COBOL program that has been running fine for about 9 months.  I made a slight SQL change to it, necessitated by changing our DB2 v. 9 from compatibility mode to enable-new-function mode.  Now I'm getting an XML-CODE value of 417 on the 'XML GENERATE' function, and I can't find any information on what this means.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks in advance.

RE: XML-CODE of 417 in 'XML GENERATE' function

I found a reference to code 417 in a Cobol for Aix 3.1 manual which said:


Element character content or an attribute value contained characters that are illegal in XML content. XML generation has continued, with the element tag name or the attribute name prefixed with 'hex.' and the original data value represented in the document in hexadecimal.

Not sure what compiler etc. you are on, but it may well be that this description applies. Have a look at the xml output that is generated, and see if you can spot whether this is the case.
