I am having a problem using LOAD in DB2 v8.1.  I am trying to load a fixed length text file that does not have a carriage return and line feed at the end of each record.  The entire text file continues on one line.  I have tried to load the file using "METHOD L" in my LOAD script but it doesn't seem to be working.  Does anyone know how I can load the text file without a carriage return and line feed?

I figured out how to do this.  I needed to use the "MODIFIED BY RECLEN=x" in my LOAD command.
