That is a mainframe (OS/390) facility to submit dynamic SQL statements to
DB2 for OS/390 from a TSO panel. It stands for SQL Processing Using File
Input (or something close to that).

Doesn't UFI stand for User Friendly Interface in this case?

Nope - Mark has the right definition - "SQL processor using file input".

It's like DB2 zOS's command line processor.

I would say it is more like the Command Center because it always runs the
SQL commands from a file (usually a PDS member) and outputs the results to a
file that can be saved. It is infinitely more user friendly than a command
line processor.

True DB2 for OS/390 commands (start database, etc.) cannot be entered via
SPUFI. They are entered via the DB2 command processor or MVS console.

DB2 for OS/390 utilities such as Copy (backup) or Restore are likewise, not
submitted via SPUFI.
