HI All,

Can we hard code a value instead of giving position?

I have a input file which needs to be loaded into a db2 table of which only few columns to be loaded from file and remaining columns to be hard coded( instead of mentioning starting/ending positions of input file) ?

is this possible and may I know how?

Can you not able to produce the load DS by using DFSORT , just take the input and BUILD it according to your syspunch and do a load?

Ram,

Take a look at the CONSTANT keyword in the LOAD statement. This might be possible if your DB2 version allows it.
