colb is a unique key in the hashed table  mytable1.

According to the documentation, it is not possible to transport a unique key column by using: TRANSPORTING colb

However, even if i change the code to the following the error persists:

MODIFY TABLE mytable1 FROM line1 TRANSPORTING cola
where (colb > 2) and (cola < 5).
