HI,
This query would give you the total number of days
since 01/01/0001 upto the current date.

Just to add one more point if u give

Code:
SELECT DAY(CURRENT_DATE)
FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1; 


the result will be the day part of the value, which is an integer between 1 and 31.

The result is 1 more than the number of days from January 1, 0001 to D, where D is the date that would occur if the DATE function were applied to the argument
