TRUNCATE TABLE really exists, or?

Hello,

Until this date, I believed that DB2 has no TRUNCATE TABLE command. But
then I came across
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoce...c/c0023297.htm
where it says:

After an ALTER TABLE statement containing
REORG-recommended operations, you can execute
only the following statements on a table:
REORG TABLE
DROP TABLE
ALTER TABLE
RENAME TABLE
TRUNCATE TABLE

So there _is_ a TRUNCATE TABLE command, or?
My DB2 Express-C v. 9.1 will NOT accept a "TRUNCATE TABLE foo" command.

Dang! Is it a defect in that the doc was updated too soon? ;-)

I am trying to get some information to compare and contrast the Truncate Table function and the Drop Table function. I know that using Truncate Table is faster and saves the structure of the table while the Drop Table will delete the table totally (data and structure). My question is whether using one function over the other will use up more capacity on the server? Ed

Hi, We have a heavily used production server and a table which logs every hit on a web site. This table has grown large over time and we want to clear it down as efficiently as possible. We would like to issue a truncate table statement, but with millions of rows we are a bit wary of how this will affect server performance. The alternative is to delete is stages using rowcount but of course this will generate a large amount of logging....

Hi group, In one of the books 'Gurus Guide to Transact SQL' i found this info: ------------------------------------------------------------ TRUNCATE TABLE empties a table without logging row deletions in the transaction log.

Once the transaction log has been invalidated, it can't be backed up until the...

I am writing some code to create new tables in a SQL database. However, I don't want to try to create a table if it already exists. How can I test beforehand to see if a particular named table already exists in the database, without actually trying to read records into a dataset? Thanks.
