[CLOSED] Is FORMAT SAME_DB somehow possible in DM flow?

I was triggered by a topic in the WF forum which indicated the "ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT SAME_DB" which I had not noted before. I will certainly start using that in WebFOCUS, but I was also thinking further to our DM flows.

We also have several DM flows where we want to store the results in the same database (DB2) without an intermediate hold file on the DM server (preventing network traffic twice).
DM provides a Direct Load flow which does provide this, but with this you can only have a single source table (no joins), and no aggregations and filters (where) are allowed, so that does not do the trick for us.
Currently we write procedures with sql passthru which works fine, but I was wondering if someone has other suggestions how to accomplish the same in a more regular flow in stead of a procedure.

Martin.
