Hi
i need to develop a job to delete all the records from a table.

The table has nearly 2 million records.

if i execute delete from table_name in the JCL i doubt whether there will be any time out error due to huge volume of data.

Can any one please suggest a better solution where i can quickly clear the table compleately

had you bothered to use correct terminology,
db2 tables have ROWS,
db2 tables DO NOT HAVE RECORDS
you could have found this link by googling.
