SQL0104 is the correct message, but it a diagnostic. I think that if your statement fails, then you should get an escape message, and the developerWorks documentation seems to agree.

I'll do a little more experimentation, but so far I have failed to get it to throw an escape message.

I did not notice the comment link--thanks. Seems a reasonable explanation of the missing help.

At the end of the developerWorks page you cited, there is a "Comments"
link. Of of those comments explains that the command has no Help Text due,
mainly, to the need to translate it into several languages (and providing
multiple PTFs for them). It seems that the help text would arrive with the
next release .

Also, did you check the command with a valid SQL statement that, for
instance, tried to use an invalid file name? SQL0104 is, I think, the
proper message for the statement you wrote :-)
