M204.0209  New value null or too long for fieldName

A value to store in fieldName is longer than the defined length of the preallocated field, or it is null.

Response: Correct the statement and retry. If the field must be lengthened, contact the file manager.

File manager response: To change the length of the preallocated field, reorganize the file. During the reorganization, change the field definition to increase the field's length, give the field the CODED attribute, or make the field non-preallocated. Field types and file reorganization are described in Field design and File reorganization and table compaction.
