What business ap would do it this way though?  Let's see, someone is 
entering orders.  I'm not supposed to write out orders until they've:
- entered a certain number of orders
- exit the program
- or I time out the program and exit it for them?
Sure would be heck if someone cancelled the job because of some record 
lock, maintenance, etc.

Re: Multiple Row Insert in SQL?

Unfortunately that syntax is not available at V5R2 in the iSeries version 
of DB2 - it is in all the others. Maybe we can hope. Because a single 
statement with multiple sets of values runs better than multiple 
statements, each with 1 set of values. This is an optimization 
recommendation in the other flavors of DB2.

So, for the moment anyway, out of luck.
