Title: RE: Problem using SQL where library contains a period

Specifying "SELECT * FROM \"TRK1.5B\".T2USERP" as the SQL string worked fine.
Thanks for your help.
Lee.

You need to put quotes around the library name.  It works (at least
basically) just like iSQL.

iSQL Create example:
     create collection TRK1.5B
     Numeric constant .5B not valid.
     create collection "TRK1.5B"
     Collection "TRK1.5B" created.


Here is what you query line should be:

            ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM
\"TRK1.5B\".T2USERP");

With the quotes around the name to signify that this is the collection, you
program will work (does for me anyway).

Good question though.

Subject:  Problem using SQL where library contains a period





Hi,

I have a problem when using JDBC and SQL to access my AS400 database. The
problem happens when there is a period in the library name. Eg Library
TRK1.5B

An extract of my java code is as follows:
// Register Native JDBC Driver and connect to local DB.
Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver");
Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2:*local");
// Run an SQL query on the table.
Statement s = c.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM TRK1.5B.T2USERP ORDER BY
SRUSER");

When this is run I get the following error message:
java.sql.SQLException: Numeric constant .5B not valid.?

This is because there is a period in the library name and SQL doesn't like
TRK1.5B.T2USERP
If I change the library name to another that has no period eg TRKTEST the
java program works fine.
Any ideas apart from changing the library name on getting round this?

Thanks,
Lee.
