No "DB2 Multisystem".

Ideally, having the correct temporal information would be the true solution.  It's an old JBA ERP system and the tables just don't support what we need for this particular circumstance.

Since, as I mentioned, non-existence should be a rare to none condition I'll likely just attempt the update and deal with a possible error.  

Probably just baggage from how I was taught that I think to try and avoid certain errors first rather than dealing with it after the fact.  Not applicable in this case though.

I don't suppose you have "DB2 Multisystem" loaded, do you? Then you could
partition (member) the historical file with a partition by year/month.

It would be really nice if this existed

then it would take care of updating the historical table for you.

I have a situation where I need to update/add/delete records in a
historical snapshot file (or files) if the current live file is changed
(retro-active changes).

The historical files are named by year/month and may or may not exist for
a selected record.

Looking for suggestions on the quickest easiest way to verify a file's
existence. This will be in a trigger program.

Thanks.
