Then I would use the csv reading logic in the article and use your previous
DB2 update logic when writing. Good luck, post back if you have more
questions.

Subject: Re: [IBMiOSS] CSV file in the IFS, writing it to a DB2 file using
Python

Reading a csv file is simple with Python.

This article outlines it pretty well.

A reason you wouldn't want cpyfrmimpf is because you may want to do
additional manipulation on the data before putting it in the db. Also may
want to eliminate fields.

Will you run this on IBM i or on a Windows/Linux machine?

Hi all
This is my first post so here goes.
I need to take a CSV file in the IFS on the iSeries and write the data
to a data base file.
I am looking at Python to do this. I already have a script to get a
XLS spread sheet to a data base file.
I have a simple script to read and print a CSV file. So, I need that
piece to parse the CSV file and write the data.

Thanks in advance.
