Resolve an MCH1202 data decimal error running a CODE-1 Plus job after installing a new US Postal database

Products Affected:  CODE-1 Plus

Issue

Executing a CODE-1 Plus job results in an MCH1202 data decimal error after loading a new US Postal database.

Cause

If a previously successful CODE-1 Plus job gets an MCH1202 data decimal error after loading a US Postal database, the cause is due to an incomplete/unsuccessful database install. 

Resolution

UPDATED: September 15, 2017
The resolution is to re-download the database from our website or eStore, and re-FTP to the IBMi machine and complete the install.  Make certain to FTP the database as EBCDIC and always check the record counts in the spool file generated to make certain the counts match the green bar listing on the website.
