Great idea, I'll do that.

It's an interesting question, and you might want to re-post it at the MI400
list. I'd like to see how the responses go there, myself.

Thanks Dennis.
Then I'll probably resort to another solution. The view thing just
maintainable. I'm just wondering how this is really handled under the
of an RPG write for instance... I would think there would be a way to
simulate that.

Best wishes,

The only choice I see in that case is that you could create a view
over the
table that excludes the columns you don't want to write. Then write

Unless I'm missing something, your alternatives are to do that; or to
to SQL for the INSERT; or to generate and write the timestamp.

If I have DDL defined tables with columns holding DB2 generated
as ROWID, defaults as CURRENT_TIMESTAMP etc - how do I code a write
records like that using _Rwrite? To be overly clear, I don't want
generate say the timestamp in my code, I want DB2 to insert the
timestamp for each write on these types of columns. Any input
