that means that your query raised a -204 sqlcode which means that you use a table that does not exists, in this case, the table name is USER.DUAL

if your sql does not reference table USER.DUAL but reference table DUAL, than you are probably running with the user USER.
if you have the DUAL table in some other schema, for example, test, you can refer to it in the sql as TEST.DUAL and that should fix your problem

Hi,

In case you are trying to select from dual, like you can do in Oracle, DB2 has a special table for for that purpose too.  That table is SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1.

Hi aaaaaa,

One more thing -- the Explain Plan portion of Aqua Data Studios can be a bit of a nuisance.

If you set the tool to use a schema other than the default, the Explain Plan process often fails due to DB2 not creating/writing the explain tables in the chosen schema.  If you experience this, rerun the query from the default schema, modifying the SQL to reference the correct schema, if necessary.


Good Luck,
Kent
