Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Make compressed timestamp columns use TIMESTAMP datatype in the control file

After performing load service, Timestamps do not have milliseconds in Oracle target database although
source database timestamps have milliseconds

Steps to Reproduce :
Step1 : Unzip the file provided in other to get "histo" folder
Step2 : Retrieve the load service DD014_HISTO.L_LOAD provided in the "histo/Objects_Used" folder.
Step3 : Retrieve the extract file DD014_HISTO_E_LOAD provided in "histo" folder
Step4 : Retrieve the Table Map DD014_HISTO_T_LOAD provided in the "histo/Objects_Used" folder
Step5 : Run the load service DD014_HISTO.L_LOAD

Expected : All the data in the extracted file are loaded correctly in the target database : the timestamps data as well.

Actual Results : Timestamps do not have milliseconds in Oracle target database although source database timestamps have milliseconds
