I am trying to use COALESCE on a timestamp column, but keep encountering the following error message.
3800: Datatype Mismatch in THEN/ELSE expression.
I created a table; definition below
CREATE TABLE T (I TIMESTAMP(6))PRIMARY INDEX ( I );
Issuing a SELECT statement as below gives me the error 3800.
SELECT (COALESCE(I,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6))) FROM T
I modified the precision on the CREATE TABLE and SELECT statement and it still failed. When I apply the COALESCE function on a DATE column it works fine. Looked at the manuals, did not see any exceptions to the COALESCE statements. Has anyone encountered this problem in V2R5? Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.
