Hello experts,
I am running IBM DB@ UDB 8.1 on Red Hat Linux 8.0.
I just like to know how can run my sql script from the command line. So far I am trying as follows:

db2 => client.sql
DB21034E  The command was processed as an SQL statement because it was not a
valid Command Line Processor command.  During SQL processing it returned:
SQL0104N  An unexpected token "END-OF-STATEMENT" was found following
"client.sql".  Expected tokens may include:  "JOIN <joined_table>".
SQLSTATE=42601

Hello Lowfatspread,
It did work differently as follows:

[db2inst1@localhost db2inst1]$ db2 connect to EJBDB

   Database Connection Information

 Database server        = DB2/LINUX 8.1.0
 SQL authorization ID   = DB2INST1
 Local database alias   = EJBDB

[db2inst1@localhost db2inst1]$ db2 -tvf client.sql -o client.sql.out
DB21004E  You cannot specify both an input file and a command when invoking
the Command Line Processor.
[db2inst1@localhost db2inst1]$ db2 -tvf client.sql
create table client ( id integer not null, name varchar(20), primary key (id) )
DB20000I  The SQL command completed successfully.

Could you please tell me, if it is possible to create a table from CLP instead of using a script?

Thanks a lot.
