Dropping Nicknames

Hi,
This problem seems to be trivial but yeah its happening to me.
I am trying to drop a nickname
db2 "drop nickname <schemaname>.<t ablename>"

after I execute the command, the cursor just hangs there. Nothing
happens. Can anybody let me know what I am doing wrong.

Maybe the nickname is in use by another connection?

Cheers

Hello If we have nicknames created in DB1 to, say, three other databases (DB2,DB3, and DB4) in the same instance. How can one find out what table/database is a nickname pointing to? For example, how do I know if a nickname called S1.nick1 in DB1 is referencing DB2, DB3, or DB4? DB2 Version: 7 or 8 Platform: AIX Thanks

On Linux or Solaris with UDB 8.2.2, can an SQL/PL stored-procedure use two-phase-commit with nicknames and if DB2 provides the Transaction-manager? i.e. in the same transaction, can an SQL/PL procedure update a local table and also update a nicknamed-table (in another database on the same hostname), before committing ? Is this possible, or must I have a CLI procedure and not use nicknames?

Hi Gang, I would like to be able to drag and drop documents onto my application and have them open immediately thereafter. Can somebody point me towards a KB article or example? I could find a lot of examples pertaining to dragging and dropping objects within a form, but nothing about dragging external documents over a form. Thanks in Advance, Christian Blackburn

hi all! I have a doubt regarding the dropping of a column. As i've seen, we have an option like "alter table <table namedrop column <column name>" in oracle. Do we have any method in db2 to drop a column? Or is there any process for dropping a column in db2? if so, please let me know.

Hi, We have DB2 version 7 fixpak 14 on AIX 5.1. We have nicknames to another RDBMS tables. These nicknames have views and specification only indexes. I would like to know how we can extract the definition of these nicknames and related objects. db2look does not seem to have any option to extract this information. I tried the command "db2look -d <DB_NAME> -e". This does not return the nickname definitions.

I am trying to create nicknames for tables in a remote database. The federated database and remote database are both DB2 UDB V8.2, both OS are AIX. Could anyone tell me how to create a nickname for a remote table with distinct data type? I try to create a type maaping for the remote distinct data type, but the system always returns the error SQL0604N. Is type mapping or nickname on distinct type supported in db2 udb v8.2?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
