We are in the process of using DB2 Connect instead of Shadow Direct as our pipe to DB2. We are experiencing some problems. One is for a datawindow edit properties tab we use an * to represent 'ALL' for the code table attributes. Shadow Direct handles this fine but DB2 shows the *. Also DB2 has a hard time handling the tilde. Does anyone have a go around for these problems? Is there a DBParm that needs to be set or something in the ODBC control settings?
