I posted this message a few minutes ago, but I didn't realize it was in the "PC Guides & IT News" forum.
Sorry about that...

Hello!

Are there any way we could move data from a DB2 table, at z/OS, to an Excel spreadsheet, in the PC-Windows, without human intervention?

Using ODBC would be one possibility; but I went through z/OS-DB2 ODBC manual and it appears to be a somewhat complicated stuff (and apparently , needs the use of C/C++, that I donĀ“t know; besides that, I'm a DB2 "end user" with some SQL knowledge only, not a DB2 expert).
Does anybody knows of any kind of code/tool, using ODBC, to do that?
As a matter of fact, using ODBC or any other type of interface, as far as we could reach the main objective: no human intevention...!


Additionally: If there is some documentation/tutorial on how to use z/OS-DB2 ODBC, simpler than the IBM manual, please let me know.

Any additional help/hint will be very much appreciated!

Hello,

The way i have seen people do something similar is to remotely connect to db2 on the mainframe, select data to the remote system, and then do whatever with the data on the target system.

If you already have an id that allows access to db2 and your organization has remote connectivity available, basically all of the work should be on the target.

Which means this is far more a PC question than a mainframe question.

Hello,

The following from Enrico in the duplicate and locked topic:

I need to use z/OS-DB2-ODBC to move data from a DB2 table (in z/OS) to other plataforms.

looks like You have put things in the wrong perspective

it will be an application on the other platform which will <pull> the data from DB2

not a zOS application


googling with EXCEL ODBC DB2 will return quite a few useful links
