I wrote a Batch-DB2 program to unload selected rows from a table in one development region and load it to the same table in a different development region. It is working properly and as designed.
The problem occurs when the structure of the table in one region is changed (may be increasing the length of one column etc). If I then try to load the table with data unloaded from table of a different region, I will get a -310 SQL return code (obviously) as the table contains decimal columns also.
Can I do something to avoid getting -310 SQL code and also load the table properly? One thing that I can do is modify the sequential file (used to load the table) to suit the destination table's characteristics, may be through SORT or ICETOOL. Are there any other suggestions?
Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks...
The data layout is not completely different. The database was installed in production region some time back. The development region's database is undergoing some changes and these changes would be in production during the next install. Till then, the unloading and loading will happen and that's where I am facing the problem.
