Is there a way to import tab delimited files into a db2 table?

I have got a tab delimited file from a customer, and I have to import this
file into a db2 table. Is there a way to do this without changing the tab
character to something different? And if so, how do I specify coldel in the
import statement?

Try using a third party tool like WinSQL
(http://synametrics.com/winsql). It can move data from text files to DB2
as well as the other way around.
