    Why don't you read the documentation and find out what else you need to specify with that command. Please don't waste everyone's time just because you have not read the documentation.

    You lost your time because you wanted ... I'm in no hurry and I can quietly await the answer from someone with more provision and education.

    mgutierres,

    I am not a fan of marcus, (but that is my personal problem)
    but let me tell you, there are few people who know more than he.

    I suggest you read the documentation.
    this forum is to help people, who have made an attempt at something
    have read the documentation
    and are still having problems.
    This is not a do-it-for-you forum,
    or a documentation reading service.
    nor is it a safe haven for those with personality disorders
    (why would you waste your first post alienating one person that could help you
    had you asked for a link, he would have probably given it to you!).

    also, considering the respect that most of us have for the knowledge that Marcus has,
    your wait may be of sufficient duration that before you receive 'your answer'
    IBM may release another version of DB2.

    but who knows? maybe someone will spoon feed you,
    I have the time to wait, also; especially since I don't have the problem
    you do.

    What an incredible lot of bovine excrement. . .

    Your bad manners are only overshadowed by your ignorance.

    When you join a group (i.e. this forum) you should pay a bit of attention to who are the main senior helpers - and not take shots at them so early in your say here.

    As DBZ mentioned, we are here to help you learn, not do it for you. Marcus was suggesting that you help yourself and not wait to be baby-spoon-fed.

    If you tried what the documention says and still have problems/questions, post back here with what you tried and what happened.
