Dynamic SQL in table SQL UDFs

In a DB2 V8.1 FP4 database I am trying to create a table SQL UDF that
is to return a contents of a temporary table with in this UDF:
create function getitemdata(pin t int)
returns table
hostid smallint,
owid bigint
specific getitemdata
begin atomic
declare v_temp_sql varchar(256);

set v_temp_sql =
'declare global temporary table '||
'item_data_tmp '||
'( '||
' hostid smallint, '||
' owid bigint '||
') '||
'on commit preserve rows not logged with replace' ;

execute immediate v_temp_sql;

<...inserting into session.item_da ta_tmp here...>

return select * from session.item_da ta_tmp;

It fails returning:

DB21034E The command was processed as an SQL statement because it was
not a
valid Command Line Processor command. During SQL processing it
SQL0104N An unexpected token "execute immediate v_temp_sql;
<...inse" was
found following "mpuser_8k_ 01' ; ". Expected tokens may include:
"<space>". LINE NUMBER=25. SQLSTATE=42601

Are dinamic SQL statements (EXECUTE/PREPARE) not allowed in table SQL
UDFs (FP4)? Any workaround?

No can do. Only the statements listed in "Compound Statement (Dynamic)"
are allowed in inline SQL PL. The idea is to keep it small and slick.
I would propose to use a persistent table and some unique "token" to
privatize access to the table by session.

Hi, I don't have much experience writting UDFs, so I don't know if this is possible (and simple). I am basically looking to write a wrapper table UDF that encapsulates reorgchk_tb_stats and reorgchk_ix_stats procedures, so I can easily manipulate the result set using SQL. TIA P. Adhia
