Hi

Presently I am working on Natural ADABAS but wanted to know how different is it from NATURAL DB2.

In Google I could find that all the natural commands are translated automatically to SQL. Is it true for every environment?

Programmatically how different are these two and if one starts using Natural DB2 will it be difficult?

Thanks in advance

If you know NATURAL and are already familiar with SQL, it should be easy. Please remember that NATURAL for DB2 is a separate product and should be purchased in addition to NATURAL.

Client for which I am getting offer will definitely have this product. I am not familiar with SQL but know Natural - Will it be difficult to switch?

a little. You should be familiar with SQL terms in order to get the results from NATURAL.
