DB2 Data Type and Code Page Mappings

SQL Server 2008 R2

This topic contains information that describes DB2 data type mappings in the Microsoft OLE DB provider for DB2 (Data Provider).

The Data Provider supports a combination of single byte character sets (SBCS), mixed-byte character sets (MBCS) double-byte character sets (DBCS), and Unicode - UTF8 [1208], which is an 8-bit Unicode transformation format. For more information, see SNA Internationalization Programmer's Reference (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=181017).

The following table describes DB2 data type mappings to OLE DB data types.

DB2 data type

Description

BIGINT

An 8-byte integer. This data type is converted to DBTYPE_I8 for use by OLE DB.

CHAR() FOR BIT DATA

A fixed binary length string containing character data. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_BSTR BYTES for use by OLE DB.

CHAR

A fixed-length SBCS or MBCS string. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_STR for use by OLE DB.

CHAR

A fixed-length mixed Unicode string. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_WSTR for use by OLE DB.

DATE

A 10-byte date string. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_DBDATE for use by OLE DB.

DECIMAL

A packed decimal number. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_DECIMAL for use by OLE DB.

DOUBLE

An 8-byte double-precision floating point number. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_R8 for use by OLE DB.

FLOAT

An 8-byte double-precision floating point number. This data type is the same as a DOUBLE. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_R8 for use by OLE DB.

GRAPHIC

A fixed-length DBCS only string. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_WSTR for use by OLE DB.

INTEGER

A 4-byte integer ranging in value from -2,147,463,648 to +2,147,483,647. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_I4 for use by OLE DB.

NUMERIC

A packed decimal number. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_NUMERIC for use by OLE DB.

SMALLINT

A SMALLINT (small integer) is a two-byte integer with a precision of 5 digits ranging from -32,768 to +32,767. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_I2 for use by OLE DB.

REAL

A 4-byte single-precision floating point number. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_R4 for use by OLE DB.

TIME

An 8-byte time string. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_DBTIME for use by OLE DB.

TIMESTAMP

A 26-byte string representing the date, time, and microseconds. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_DBTIMESTAMP for use by OLE DB.

VARCHAR() FOR BIT DATA

A varying-length binary string containing character data. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_BYTES for use by OLE DB.

VARCHAR

A varying-length SBCS or MBCS character string. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_STR for use by OLE DB.

VARCHAR

A varying-length Unicode string. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_WSTR for use by OLE DB.

VARGRAPHIC

A varying-length DBCS only string. The maximum length of the string depends on the DB2 platform and version. This data type is converted to a DBTYPE_WSTR for use by OLE DB.
