[CLOSED] Append DB2 Table
 Login/Join

I am running a procedure Mon - Fri at 7am, creating a DB2 table, with the following code:

SQL DB2
DROP TABLE LIBRARY1/FIELNAME1 CASCADE
END
TABLE FILE HOLD20
PRINT FIELD5 FIELD6 FIELD7
BY FIELD1
BY FIELD2
BY FIELD3
BY FIELD4
ON TABLE HOLD AS FILENAME1 FORMAT DB2
END

I want to append to this table instead of drop. I've tried changing 'DROP' to 'MODIFY', but that didn't work (too easy). Suggestions?

I would use MODIFY FILE with the HOLD file as input:

MODIFY FILE FILENAME1
FIXFORM FROM HOLD20
DATA ON HOLD20
END

ON TABLE HOLD will first remove an existing table (if there is one) and then create the new table and fill it with the results of the request.
That's just the way it's supposed to work, since it can't know that an already existing table has the same structure.
What Frnacis says is the only way to append. Hold it to a fix format, and use MODIFY to add that data to the DB2 table.

Is the 'MODIFY FILE' within the SQL Editor?

MODIFY FILE is similar to TABLE FILE,.. it's a FOCUS command... Not part of SQL passthrough.

Thanks,

Ok. That won't work the the DB2 table on the AS400. We worked around using RPG. Thanks!
