Usage Notes

Period-as-Struct is a one byte ASCII field that indicates whether to treat Period data types as Structured UDTs in honoring the Transforms-off option and return information about the constituent attributes.

Language Variable Name
COBOL: PERIODASSTRUCT
C: periodAsStruct
Routine Action Taken
DBCHINI: writes
DBCHCL: reads (RSUP; IRQ)
Used by Action Taken
application program writes
Possible value that can be set in this DBCAREA field is 'Y' and 'N'.
  • 'N' - the value of 'N' indicates that Period data types are treated as simple data types.
  • 'Y' - the value of 'Y' indicates that Period data types are treated as Structured UDTs in honoring the Transforms-off option. Setting "periodAsStruct" to 'Y' requires setting the "transformsOff" to 'Y' at the same time. If not, the database will return an error since the support of Period as Struct is an extension of the support of Structured UDTs.
