DB2 Truncate

Postby vkumarg3 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 6:17 pm

Hi all,

My problem is, could not use TRUNCATE command in DB2-COBOL program.


This was my code it shows two errors when compling.

First Error : "IS" required
Second Error: Illegal symbol SELL_DB_UPLD, some symbol that is legal are "IS".

We are using DB2 version 8. Whether TRUNCATE command work above DB2 9.7 version or it will run in all version?

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Have a look at the manual for your version of DB2. They are all available on the web.
