|I am guilty of telling posters (of these kind of questions) to not use them
and suffer the consequences of poor db design.
I wish to be spared these type of comments,
and I will spare you the story of why I want to use DB2 Reserved Words as column names (in the hundreds of tables and thousands of modules that already exist).
I have tables with column names that include:
Our software is DB2 Vsn 7/Cobol II - even though the rest of the firm is using DB2 Vsn 9.1/E-COBOL and is probably moving to DB2 Vsn 10 next year.
We are currently spared the necessity of converting to E-Cobol because the Vsn 7 precompiler generate SQL that runs in DB2 V9.1.
The liscense for the DB2 Vsn 7 precompiler actually dictates when I have to really consider changes potentially required for this.
Vsn 9.1 allows me to use the (above mentioned) reserved words without using quotes.
My question is:
Will Version 10, also allow me to use these reserved words as column names?
anybody on vsn 10 yet that can provide me (and I imagine others) some info - advice I don't need - either I hand it out or ignore it when received.
