Gee and we wonder why the AS/400(iSeries, etc) is dying.

Coincidently, in my current job, I'm the "new" guy (only 7 years from
date of hire) and the only one using RDP, even though we bought licenses

Subject: Re: Identity columns
Thanks for the information. I went into Navigator and looked at the table
definition. There it was, "Is Identity" as one of the columns related to
the columns in the table. I guess I will need to start using Navigator
I also just discovered that the DSPFFD command does show the information
as well. We have a home grown LSTFFD command that we always use, so we
never use DSPFFD. I guess I need to update our command or use DSPFFD.

right click the table and generate the SQL Script which will create the DDL
script and you can tell from that.

In MS SQL there is a stored procedure called "sp_help" which gives table
forced to utilize the DB2 catalog views to get the same type of information.
