2508848 - "Invalid expression" error happened from a problematic query


IQ server returned an error "invalid expression near ' 1=1 '" against a specific query.
The problematic query worked fine in IQ 15.4, but failed after migrating to IQ 16.0.
Also, setting a temporary option REVERT_TO_V15_OPTIMIZER='ON' in IQ 16 still got the same issue.


Select distinct ALS001.COL001 ALS002,
case when ALS001.COL001 = 1 then 'AAA' else 'BBB' end ALS003
from "TAB001" ALS001, "TAB002" "ALS004"
where ALS001.COL001 = "ALS004".COL001

+21,E,27,-156,Invalid expression near ' 1=1 '

If no foreign key constraint specified, the error does not happen.

If a foreign key constraint is added and,

1) if changing the filter to cast(ALS001.COL001 as integer) = 1, then the query will execute successfully.
2) if removing the ALS001.COL001 = 1, the query also executes successfully.
3) if changing the ALS001.COL001 = 3, the query also executes successfully(Of course, it's wrong results.).
4) if replacing "=" in the CASE statement with "IN" the query also executed successfully. // when ALS001.COL001 IN (1)
5) if changing the query to Ansi Join, It's still getting an invalid error.
