Deleting Rows from DB2 table that Contain LOBs

P: n/a
I'm looking to purge rows from a DB2 table that contains both a CLOB
(1M) and BLOB (51K), but our DBA is not familiar with LOBs. I work on a
mainframe (z/OS), and we don't normally use LOBs in our shop. These
LOBs were set up by a vendor. Our DBA mentioned that a simple DELETE
would not work, but he thought that a COBOL program could be written to
do the job. Any ideas?

A simple DELETE will work.
