We recently converted from BMC to IBM Db2 utilities. It would be very useful if multiple column names could be specified on the WHEN criteria for the Db2 LOAD utility. This would also make the functionality similar to the WHEN criteria of REORG WITH DISCARD.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Any customers wanting to limit data at the time of a LOAD using multiple columns which are not of the same datatype or are non-contiguous|
How should it work?
Allow syntax like the following:
LOAD INTO TABLE qualifier.tablename
WHEN column1 = value
AND column3 = value
|Priority Justification||This would enhance the functionality of the LOAD utility, and simplify conversions from other vendors which currently allow for this.|
|Customer Name||Principal Financial Group|
