Hi RoyalCyber,

If you've got some odd formatting issues (like dates) you might find it easier to use Micro$oft Access to link to the csv file and export it to DB2.

if you could post one line of the csv file then it would be easier to tell you how to approach this problem

with 10k records you could use import or load, import if you dont want to impose exclusive locks on the table, load if speed is more important and you can load the data without worrying about concurrent access.
As for the method, its quite straightforward
db2 import from filename insert into tablename
your table must be definded as follows:
col1 char or varchar
col2 char of varchar
col3 smallint or int
col4 date
col5 char or varchar
if the table has primary key or index, some records may not be loaded or imported
