Access to SQL Server from a different platform is done the same way almost all databases are accessed cross-platform. Download the driver from the vendor for the platform you’re running on. The only driver that I’m aware of that Microsoft currently makes available that will run on your AS/400 is the <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a737000d-68d0-4531-b65d-da0f2a735707&displaylang=en”>Microsoft SQL Server [...]

I don’t think such a function exists. The <a href=”http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/c/8/ec8d5025-7ef7-4dcc-a9f3-9c297cf5350e/SSMAOracle.docx”>Guide to Migrating from Oracle to SQL Server 2005</a> specifies that the Oracle’s DECODE function is converted using standard T-SQL mapping (using a CASE-WHEN construct). That is also the case when migrating to SQL Server 2008.

Is the Scheduler passing parameters into the stored procedures? Are any values defined differently depending on the execution steps? If so, I would start with checking those values.

A function with return type VARCHAR2 will produce this error when used in a query if it returns more than 4000 bytes, because that is the max size of a database’s varchar2 type (as opposed to the pl/sql varchar2 type which can hold up to 32737 bytes). You might probably avoid that error by changing [...]
