Someone is mildly misinformed. and it might be me. DB2 was rebranded UDB anything you can do with DB2 you can do with UDB there are a few things you can do with later versions that you could not do with earlier versions see my post on a related list about IBM's XQuery announcement where you can use DB2 tools to access XML "data" Keep your DDS objects use SQL to change the objects created by DDS Be very careful about adding fields to the end of records. 100% of the programs accessing those records are now at risk of bombing, if they are written in a language that locks in the compile to the old file layout, even though the old programs are not using the new fields, they are using the old layout. > I was just told there is a directive from management to look into > UDB for the 400's DB2.
