I really need to know if there's a way to get a DB2 table structure and indexes from a job?

I tried to use the DESCRIBE command but it seems it isn't working...

Ideas?

This is the JCL I tried to use...

Code:

//STEP001  EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01,DYNAMNBR=20,REGION=4M
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSTSIN  DD *                                                         
DSN SYSTEM(DB1D)                                                       
RUN  PROGRAM(DSNTEP2) PLAN(DSNTEP2) -                                   
     LIB('SYS1.DSNDB1D.RUNLIB.LOAD') PARMS('/ALIGN(MID)')               
END                                                                     
/*                                           
//SYSIN    DD *                             
DESCRIBE XXXX.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX;           
/*                                           
//*


Tks

I don't think describe commands work in DB2 mainframe.

If you are looking to generate DDLs of objects, there is no simple way unless you use a third party tool like BMC or CA or even IBM DB2 tools.

However you can get all information about the objects from catalog tables and try and reconstruct DDLs yourself if you like.
