A CLIv2 StatementInfo parcel is used in both “Prepare then Execute” and “Parameterized Query” CLI modes to describe fields for export and import and to build a USING request modifier without a USING request modifier in the request text.
- DateTime and Interval exported values as seen by the client as CharFix data with the exception of DATE values when the session is in INTEGERDATE mode.
- Imported values that are to be DateTime or Interval values are seen by the system as CharFix values with the exception of DATE values when the session is in INTEGERDATE mode.
When used in an INSERT or UPDATE request, CharFix values can be implicitly cast in the appropriate DateTime or Interval value. In this case, the system ensures that the value being assigned is CharFix and that it has the right length to represent the DateTime or Interval value to which it is being assigned.
The system casts the value and accepts the result if the contents are a valid representation of a value of the indicated data type. In other cases, you must explicitly cast the USING parameter as the appropriate DateTime or Interval data type.
