I'm using DB2 9.7 with AIX 6.1. Right now I'm using a file to import data into a DB2 table like this:

db2 import from Filename.txt of del modified by dateformat=\"YYYYMMDD\" messages import.msg insert into Table

I would like to use a variable to import this data instead if it's possible

echo "$Variable"
20130411,1602,11352,696800.00,432475.00
20130411,1602,11408,112535.00,89896.00
20130411,1602,11428,70216.83,531499.13
20130411,1602,11557,0.00,434797.00

I tried running this:
db2 import from $Variable modified by dateformat=\"YYYYMMDD\" messages import.msg insert into Table

SQL0104N An unexpected token "," was found following "<identifier>".
Expected tokens may include: "OF". SQLSTATE=42601

Has anyone done this and can help me out? I have not done this before and don't know if it's possible.
Thank you so much!
