Reply with quote

Hello,

I am trying to load data into a DB2 table using DSNUTILB-LOAD utilility. The data is delimited by ';'. There are lot of DECIMAL(COMP-3) fields in the data. I am receiving 'conversion error' on these fields.

Can't I load delimited decimal data using LOAD utility? Is there a work around(except specifying positions)? I have about 100 fields to be loaded into the table.

Thank You.

I think comma-delimited LOAD began with version 8. What are you on?

I think the default delimiter is comma, but there is a parm that let's you redefine it as, in your case, semi-colon.

Have you done that?
