Do not post attachment, not everybody can see them
furthermore screen shots just waste space
a plain text cut and paste and the code tags will be more effective

as ( topic is unrelated but there are screenshots taken wit text cut and paste )

now you should post the sql as text before we can advice.
But you can not ALTER TABLE DELETE COLUMNS

Hello,

I thought that was one big difference in DB2 compared to other databases like ORACLE... (though there would be many differences)

One cannot delete columns in DB2 by ALTER command. If a column has to be deleted, it can only be done by DROP and CREATE TABLE.

Please correct me if I am mistaken.

-Thanks,
Rakesh.
