I'd not use DSPFFD either, but access Catalog Views (located in QSYS2
containing almost all information about the data base objects) to get the
appropriate information instead.
To find field/column information, use catalog view SYSCOLUMNS.

Betreff: 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.

Look at the DDL is the easiest way. Go into navigator, double click on
the table and investigate the column in the GUI. Alternatively you can
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
information, I don't think an equivalent exists in DB2. I believe you are
forced to utilize the DB2 catalog views to get the same type of information.
