Here is the SQL:

create table reffilet(
sydate date not null with default current_date,
sytime time not null with default current_time,
syuser varchar(18) not null with default user,
sytimestmp timestamp not null
with default current_timestamp,
syusersess varchar(128) not null with default session_user);

If you comment out the last statement and make the definition of column
sytimestmp the last statement, it runs.


The manual I am referring to is:

Version 7.3
Db2 for i SQL Reference


I tried creating a new table with System i Navigator. For the field that
is causing the issue, the SESSION_USER is not listed as one of the default
values. I am assuming now that the manual is incorrect, or there is a PTF
needed to allow usage of special register SESSION_USER, or maybe
SESSION_USER is only allowed to be used in a SELECT statement.

Thank you,
