Hi Vignesh,

Welcome to the forums!.

Are you asking 'A program having DB2 statements (DML) against a database which doesn't have a backup ?'.

It depends,
If it is a test database, no one else is working on it. No will ask you what you did ?

If it is a test database and development team has built new policy numbers and your program has manipulated something. And development team might build the policy numbers again or raise a issue to dba. DBA might look into the log and probably can find your name and tell it the development team. They might come and say HI to you.

Story might go on.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

If the sql only reads, there should be no worry about the data.

If the sql does any kind of update, it is inappropriate/unacceptable to run the code without having a backup. . .
