DB2 has "Error during transaction or heuristic processing" SQL0998N Reason Code = "15". Subcode = "". SQLSTATE=58005

Hi all,

I am working on a DB2 project and running into this problem. When I run quite a complicated query with joins, I have this exception "Not in a transaction ERROR [58005] [IBM][DB2/NT] SQL0998N  Error occurred during transaction or heuristic processing.  Reason Code = "15". Subcode = "".  SQLSTATE=58005"
I tried to increase the MSDTC timeout time to maximum (3600) as recommended by IBM, but it didnt help. Did any one have idea or solution for this, please give me a hand. Really appreciated.

Hi momi_sabag,

As company policy, I cannot post the query. However, it is made by inner/left outer join of around 10 tables. Also, I have some fields that are itself sub queries made by other few tables joinning.
SELECT A.a, B.b, C.c ,
(SELECT X.x,Y.y FROM X inner join Y on...where X.a = A.a),
(Select M.m from M inner join on N... where M.c = C.c),...
INNER JOIN D on ....

I hope this give you some ideas about my query. If I get rid of those sub queries, most likely the error will not happen, so the timeout time reason as IBM DB2's handbook makes sense. But it couldnt help to solve the problem either.

Thanks for any comment.

well, i guess you better contact ibm then
