25606: Different byte swap of source and target machine; long values may be corrupted after import


A warning appears when you use the Loader command for importing data. The table to be imported contains LONG values. The byte swap of the source and target computers is different. For this reason, LONG values may be incorrect or corrupted once they have been imported. This warning does not cause the command to terminate.

User Response:

Check the LONG values in the database instance after they have been imported:

  • If they have been imported without any errors, you do not need to take any action.
  • If the LONG values contain errors, they must be re-imported.
