Create a LF over the PF, specifying the fields in the file. The
trick is to OMIT the fields you want DB2 to automatically initialize,
so RPG doesn't use its own rules to populate those fields. If this
case, just include the GRPNAME and CUSER fields.

Here's one using ROWID and a date column:such

CACHE 20 )
GRPNAME CHAR(25) CCSID 278 NOT NULL DEFAULT '' ,
CUSER CHAR(10) CCSID 278 NOT NULL DEFAULT '' ,
CDATE DATE NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_DATE )
And here's how I'd code it in RPG (the formatting will be off, sorry):
ftemptest uf a e disk rename(temptest: rtemptest)
*inlr = '1';
grpname = 'xyz';
cuser = 'someone';
I specify writing to two columns and DB2 puts in values for the other two
(identity column and date).
Is this behaviour possible to imitate?
Can you post the DDL and an SQL CREATE and an SQL INSERT ?

Subject: [MI400] Write to db containing values defined by DB2

Posted this on the C list but was adviced to try out here as well.
If I have DDL defined tables with columns holding DB2 generated values
sameas ROWID, defaults as CURRENT_TIMESTAMP etc - how do I code a write to
columns like that using (the C runtime) _Rwrite (I don't know what one
use in MI)?
That is, is there a way to emulate how an RPG write opcode handles the
