hi,

in our shop we implement datafixes in production via hand crafted sql which is run via spufi/dsntiaul. Typically consists of pre-update fetch; update/delete followed up post-update fetch. One job for rollback; one for commit.

the process is cumbersome, tedious and error prone.

does anyone know of a tool or product extention that allows for the building of dml using templates. In my ideal environment all i want to do is identify (by technical ids) rows of tables that need to be updated/deleted. I want this tool to be smart enough to created formatted sql following a set of standard templates, and fill in any RI dependants based on catalog info. The hard part of the process should be the identicication of what needs to change and how it needs to change. This requires detailed business knowledge. But there is no reason why the rest of it can't be automated.

I can do something like this with JCL/REXX but I don't want to reinvent the wheel. Besides, there's a bit of work involved. not looking for a solution, just some pointers or suggestions for things I should be looking at.
