Abstract: The way of handling terminator is changed from version 5.1 to version 5.5.
Upgrading from version 5.1 to version 5.5, UDFs return error
"arithmatic exception, numeric overflow or string truncation". How
The way of handling terminator is changed from version 5.1 to version
5.5. In version 5.5, there is an extra null character added. If the
maximum parameter is used in the UDF,then the truncation will be
returned. For example, there is an UDF that returns char(5) as the
output parameter. When the UDF returns 5 characters, then this error
will be generated. The workaround is to re-declare the UDF to
accommodate the extra null character. For this case, the UDF needs to
change to return char(6) for 5 character max.
