iS THE REASON THIS FAILS ANYTHING TO DO with the fact my primary key
ends with nullable columns....
the second  create table works if just the tradegroup column is allowed to be nullable...
 


db2 => CREATE TABLE stg.tmp_aGR_TRADE
(
    AGREEMENT_ID     INTEGER                NOT NULL,
   AGREEMENT_TYPCD  INTEGER                NOT NULL,
   TRADE_CODE CHAR(4) ,
   TRADEgROUP CHAR(4) ,
   poSTCODE CHAR(4) ,
   risks integer not null,
 primary key (AGREEMENT_id,AGREEMENT_TYPCD,TRADE_CODE,postcode)
)
IN heapSPACE
    INDEX IN heapSPACE
NOT LOGGED INITIALLY;db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) =>
 db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2
(cont.) => db2 (cont.) => db2 (cont.) =>
DB21034E  The command was processed as an SQL statement because it was not a
valid Command Line Processor command.  During SQL processing it returned:
SQL1476N  The current transaction was rolled back because of error "-542".
SQLSTATE=40506
db2 => CREATE TABLE stg.tmp_aGR_TRADE

Yes, you can NOT define a primary (neither a unique) key on Nullable columns.
==> The expression "Col1 = NULL" is evaluated to NULL whatever Col1 is and no dbms is expected to work with Null values outside the scope of "Is Null" or "Is Not Null" operators (Which means that some dbms does this...MS-Jet or Oracle used to allow creation of Unique index on nullable columns but I think none will allow that on Primary key)

Anyway, why don't you create your Primary key on a SEQUENCE based column ?

Hope this helps.

yes thanks schmuh, it had been a late and frustrating night at that stage....

on os390 you can have unique where not null indexes...

my primary key is basically my business key...
this is a temporary table to enable me to gather some min/max information
prior to populating the final wharehouse tables during my ETL process...
its a 4 way join at this stage and i'm trying to minimise index requirements...

Creating new primary keys based on sequence may save huge time if you need to make this 4 col joins more than once.

   Take advantange of performence, I do not advice to use sequence .Can we  change (trade_code char(4) not null ,poSTCODE CHAR(4) NOT NULL) to (trade_code smallint not null  ,poSTCODE smallint NOT NULL)?
    I think you can get good performence especially this table is a fact table.
    By the way, If you upgrade to db2 udb v8 ,you can use mdc table  to improve the performence.
