Hi,

I would need to retrieve data from a DB2 table based on the field position in the database record. I don't have the field name. This needs to be a part of a COBOL-DB2 program.

How could this be achieved?

Thanks,
Mohan

Hello,

I'd suggest you do the research and find the field name. If you have the table name, you can easily get the column names (either by a query or from your DBAs).

"Field position" is not used in database applications.
