Hello and welcome to the forum,

Why do you call the data "virtual columns"? I suspect the PS data is fb with 4 fields (which is most common).

The way to get the data form the file into a table is to read a record from the file, move the data to the db2 host variables, and INSERT the rows.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi,

I guess, dick has mentioned below is how to load the data in to the table using the application program. Apart from that you can also use the db2 utilitiy DSNUTILB. You have to provide the detail information in the sysin such as position and Length in the input file field for perticuler table filed data.

There are few posts available regarding this load utilty in the portal, pls view those posts once.

Thanks
