<<SNIP>> Any idea if there is a way to run a remote SQL command from

us not having a DB2 Connect license. I am sure I can find a command

that would use the saved credentials like RMTCMD does.

Not sure if it meets the requirements, but...

The DB2 command line interface in QShell enables running SQL statements from a text [stream] file [using the -f switch\parameter for SQL-source-options]. And that utility can be invoked via the CL command QSH CMD() via a RmtCmd invocation; optionally directly referencing a file residing on the requesting system, as the scripted-source input.

The db2 utility uses the SQL CLI (Call Level Interface) and allows you to run SQL statements directly, interactively, or from a file.
