HI,

I would like to load a field of 35 characters with null value when there is space.

Currently i have a statement given below.

Load Data Resume Yes..INTO Table1

(Field1 position (1:20) Char nullif(1:40 = x'4040404040404040404040404040404040404040'))

I just want to know if there is any simplified code instead of having long code like (x'4040404040404040404040404040404040404040').

Thanks
Vijay

DB2 utility throws syntax error when i continue that long hexadecimal value on 2nd line.

(Field1 position (1:40) Char
nullif(1:40 = '404040404040404040440404040404040-
4040404040404040404040'))

I tried hyphen also at 72nd byte as continuation character...but getting same syntax error.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this issue?

Thanks
Vijay

Hello,

Using the Code tag, post the actual sql being run and the disgnostic information generated. Copy/paste - do not re-type.

Is the column defined as nullable?

I used spaces directly as given below instead of hexadecimal value. Load was successfull. Thanks.


(Field1 position (1:40) Char
nullif(1:40 = ' '))
