It depends on what tools you want to use, a sort copy can provide the means to skip the first 400 records......

you may use the DB2 Restart Logic.

whenever you write a successful record to the DR2 table, you move the primary key field of that record to a temporary dataset. by doing this, you will be storing the key of the last successful insertion into the table. after the job abends and you want to restart the job. you first check that temporary dataset for the key. the last key written in that dataset is the place where the job ended. now you read the source dataset using that key and start processing further.
