It's pretty simple.

If you're running with any commitment control level except *NONE or *NC, you can manually issue a ROLLBACK command.

Since it's been a couple days since you posted the question, that may not be viable.

If you're running on DB2 for iSeries (a.k.a AS/400 or System i), then you could check the journaling data for the table.

Outside of those options, you'll need to restore from backup.

Good luck!

The DB2 Recovery Expert can also perform logical undo. Costs $$ though.
