    DB2 provides tools and commands for migration from Version 5.2 to Version 7.

    Read Quick Beginnings V7 for your platform to know the supported migration procedure.

    Also, do not miss to read Appendix C and Appendix D in the Administration Guide - Planning (V7) before doing the migration.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
