is not the same as "remove the records with '-' in the results below" -- if you'd asked the right question first, that would have helped.

Since I'm not a DB2 person I can't tell you how to change the WHERE clause but the records with '-' (now space) either have CDREASON not = H or REG_TYPE not = 'H' or A.DTCREATE not = '2008-10-16' -- so you need to modify your SELECT to not pick those records.

Hello,

The "screen" shots have been removed.

If you want that info back in the topic, use copy/paste and the "Code" tag to present information from a 3270-terminal.

Thank you.

Hi

This is more specific to the Functionality and your application. Since we do not have any knowledge on your application and table usage, it would not be a more accurate answer what we provide here.

By looking at the result which you have given above,

You are specifically interested only on

1) REG_TYPE = 'H' and A.DTCREATE = '2008-10-16' Or
2) B.CDREASON = 'H'

When the retrieved records are not satisfy this condition, you are getting
'-' (No Value or NULL).

So to avoid these records, you can use the above condition in WHERE Clause of the query.


Code:
 
WHERE A.PERSONAL_ID = B.PERSONAL_ID
..................
.................
.................
AND ((REG_TYPE = 'H' AND A.DTCREATE = '2008-10-16')
 OR (B.CDREASON = 'H'))


This is just a tendative answer based on your output.

If it also does not satisfy your requirement, do please contact you team mates...

Suggestions are welcome
