3. Known problems

The following items are known problems in this release of BPI Suite for Healthcare. These items will be addressed in future releases of the product.

3.1 QTS 345574: ECGateway

Problem: If you use ASE for the System and SystemLog databases, several columns are defined using the smalldatetime datatype. This datatype is only precise to the nearest minute and is not precise enough to use.

Resolution: All the fields with the datatype of smalldatetime are changed to datetime datatype in ASE. For existing tables, you need to run the SQL statement “ALTER TABLE [TABLE NAME] MODIFY [COLUMN NAME] DATETIME” for the following fields: TRANSLATED_DT and ACK_DATE in table ACK997, RUN_DATE in table ACKTA1, STOREDATE and STORETIME in table ARCHFILE, RUN_DATE and ACKBY_DATE in table TRLOG.

3.2 QTS 348251: ECGateway TBCR.dll Reports

Problem: TBCR.DLL uses the login name to identify tables in the database as existing. This causes an issue when the target database does one or more of the following:

Resolution: The user accessing the ASE tables must be the owner of the tables.

You might find it helpful to configure your tool to announce syntax conventions. Consult the documentation for your tool.
