Hi ,

My requirement is as follows :
We have a masterid and want to get a list of which all tables host this master id or in other words all the table dependenceis of this master id .

Is there any catalog query which can be executed against the master id which will fetch us the list of all the tables which hold this master id .

All replies appreciated !!

Table SYSIBM.SYSCOLUMNS can be searched to get all the tables which hold this column.

Thanks Manu ....

But i think i did'nt explained it right to the forum .... my mistake ..

Requirement is :

Suppose the Master_id column contains value such as : 'FT1099987'
and i want all the tables where master_id='FT1099987' resides.

I.e The list of tables which holds this 'FT1099987' .

SYSIBM.SYSCOLUMN provided me the tables list which holds the column MASTER_ID whereas my query is for a value contained inthis field.


Hope i am clear this time .... Pls post the query if anyone knows..

Hello,

I believe there is no single query that will do this.

If this was my requirement, i'd write a query that identifies all of the tables with the "master_id" column. Then, i'd use that list of tables to generate a "select count(*) from xxx where master_id = 'FT1099987' " query for each table in the list and execute that collection of queries. All of the non-zero counts would be a table containing the value you are looking for. Hopefully, master_id is a key. . .

You can do it by writing a REXX. I have written a REXX tool for this earlier but am not sure how apt it would be with your environment.
