generated columns for z/os

P: n/a
can the technique I have seen here and elsewhere to solve the
case-insensitive search problem with db2 be implemented in z/os?

for example...
alter table individual
add column up_lname
generated always as
(upper(lname));

Then I should be able to do case insensitive searches and use an index
(well, if one is there on up_lname).

Thanks

I just checked. Not in DB2 V8 for zOS.

Thanks. That is as I suspected.
