recommend basic SQL book on DB2?

P: n/a
Can anyone share their recommendation for a basic book on SQL syntax
in DB2? I'm a Teradata/ Oracle/ MSSQL Server/ MS Access user with no
DB2 experience. Most of my work problems have to do with date and
string manipulation queries, exporting data to another platform.

Thx,
Nolan

From the online books, SQL Reference 1 and 2, and the command
reference.

Use SQL 1 for query structure and catalog TABLEs, use 2 for FUNCTIONs.
The Command Reference is about the CLP command like CONNECT and LOAD.

Graeme's Cookbook is superb. Excellent examples, good explanations, and
thorough coverage.
