The better a problem is described, the better the assistance tends to be.

In order to better assist with your issue at hand, please include the following information in your initial post:

 

-          Product, Version, and relevant environment details.

-          Include a screenshot of the problem

-          Describe the problem fully. What result was expected?

-          Can the issue be created on demand or is it intermittent?

-          If the problem can be generated faithfully, what are the exact steps to recreate the problem?

-          Any other pertinent information (see below)

 

Create Support Bundles

 You can create a support bundle and send it to Dell Support or to the Toad for IBM DB2 community Web site (peer-to-peer support). The support bundle provides information (about your application and the database) that is used to help troubleshoot problems.

 Select Help | Support Bundle. It may take time for Toad to generate the support bundle depending on your system configuration.

 

 Create Support Bundle for a SQL Query Issue

 If your issue is a SQL query issue, it is helpful if additional log files are included in the support bundle. These log files are automatically included if you generate a support bundle immediately after executing the query in either the Editor or Query Builder.

 To create a support bundle for a SQL query issue

1. In the Editor or Query Builder, reproduce the error or issue.

2. After reproducing the error, immediately select Help | Support Bundle to generate a support bundle.

3. Toad asks if you want to log the row count for each table used in the query. If you select Yes, Toad determines the size of each table used in the query. This adds additional time to the generation process, but also provides additional information about your issue.

 4. When Toad is finished generating the support bundle attach log.

  

Note: For best results, always send the entire support bundle. This provides Support with the most information about your issue and aids the troubleshooting process.

*Note: Please refrain from including private data in your posts

Be as thorough as you can with the provided info. We will reply to you as quick as possible. We are glad to assist you

-  Version: Toad for DB2 4.7 on Win 10,  DB2 Server on AIX ,
-  Purpose: We are implementing PAM (Privilege Account Management ) so the goal is to launch Toad for DB2 4.7 and make connection to designated database with all the credentials been provided by PAM, no entry required for operators.
-  What have tried:  Searched on internet and all information I got are for Toad for Oracle, and it seems many people are using that way:  
            Toad.exe -c $Username/$Password@$Database   or  
            Toad.exe connect=$Username/$Password@$Database
            ($parameters will be substituted by PAM)

-  when using above commands in DOS command line with real credentials the Toad for DB2 just started with an empty editor window and no connection was made, and no error message.  

So I wonder if launch a connection by command line is feasible for Toad for DB2?

Hi All,

I am very new to DB2 world and I would like to know the Implementation of Error Handling in DB2 stored procedures along with rollback.

Example Scenario:  A db2 stored proc have different dml commands like Insert and updates. During the time of inserts and updates I need to implement error handling. Also if there is a dependency between Inserts and updates. If all the inserts got successful and something in the updates failed with in single stored procedure then all the inserts must rollback and should display the error message.

Thanks!!!

Hello,

I have just upgraded to 6.5 and I am getting a problem which I didn't get in 6.1.

When I put statements such as :

  DECLARE v_current INT DEFAULT 0;

in to the editor I get the "red star" syntax error highlight, see below

However, if I remove the semi colon from the first line, the second line no longer errors:

I'm sure this is a configuration issue, but I can't see which option to change to fix this problem.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Dear All,

I'm a SQL Server guy but we do have a system that uses DB2. As per the subject above, I can easily do this in Transact-SQL.But in DB2 SQL, I am having some difficulty.

So, looking ar the SQL below, this works fine:

SELECT d - DAYOFYEAR(d) DAYS + ((QUARTER(d) - 1) * 3) MONTHS - 3 MONTHS + 1 DAY
FROM (VALUES DATE('2017-04-21')) as D (d)

But once, I wrap in common table expression (that's what they are called in Transact-SQL) and I do a SELECT, I get no joy.

WITH StarDate

(

SELECT d - DAYOFYEAR(d) DAYS + ((QUARTER(d) - 1) * 3) MONTHS - 3 MONTHS + 1 DAY
FROM (VALUES DATE('2017-04-21')) as D(d)

)

SELECT  *  FROM StarDate  -- This doesn't work!

Any ideas, please?

Regards.
