DB2 V8.2 - Value compression question

P: n/a
GM,

I have couple of questions related to value compression feature in DB2
V8.2
[1] Any method to get the list of tables enabled/not enabled for value
compression in DB2 V8.2 ?. I think I can use db2look to generate the
DDL but I would prefer to use any system catalog table if available.

[2] Any method to estimate the space savings in value compression is
enabled in DB2 V8.2 ? ( I'm looking for a method similar to "inspect
rowcompestimate..." available in DB2 9)

Thanks,
Sam

I think SYSCAT.TABLES.COMPRESSION column would fetch the answer for my
question [1]. But question [2] is still open.
Thanks.
