DB2v8.2 LUW. Unable to drop Foreign Key constraints...

DB2v8.2 LUW. Unable to drop Foreign Key constraints...a lthough DROP constraints returns undefined name. Am I missing somrthing here?

Hi all,
I have a perplexing DB2 Drop command situation. Environment I have tried severally to drop Foreign Key constraints on a set of tables and each time I get a SQL0204N "SQL07103010430 7060" is an undefined name. ".
However, when I go back to look at the table or load data, I get a constraint error telling me that the same constraint that is a undefined name still exist. I run a generate ddl command for the table, indeed the constraint still do exist!

Be assured that I am logged in to the right instance, database, etc.
What can possibly be the problem here? How can I make sure these constraints are dropped?

Here's an example of one that I have tried to drop but no avail:

Hibernate creates foreign key constraints when it is creating our DB (mysql 4.0.14). The process for loading data requires us to break these constraints at certain points, however they will all be satisfied at the end of the transaction.

I've got a problem which I think may be a bug in Postgres, but I wonder if I'm missing something. Two tables, A & B have foreign key relations to each other. A 3rd table C, inherits from A. A stored procedure updates a row in C, adds a row each in B & C. I get an integrity violation. All the foreign keys are deferrable, and the stored procedure is called from within a transaction with constraints deferred. (And the foreign keys do refer to...

Hi all, I read on the manual page for Inheritance that: "A limitation of the inheritance feature is that indexes (including unique constraints) and foreign key constraints only apply to single tables, not to their inheritance children. Thus, in the above example, specifying that another table's column REFERENCES cities(name) would allow the other table to contain city names but not capital names. This deficiency will probably be fixed...
