Automate Import of Text File Into DB2

I need to automate a twice daily text file into a DB2 database.
What would be the best way to accomplish this.
I could have the file FTP'd to a directory where the database could get to it. I don't know where to go from there and my experience is with SQL Server. Is there some analog to DTS in DB2?

Yes you should do a simple LOAD of the files into a table by simply executeing

db2 "load from 'testfile' of del insert into workemployee"

and you probably have to put the full path to the file inside the single quotation mark.
What version of DB2 are you using and on what OS ?

If you are using DB2 on Linux or Windows you could alwas generate
a scheduled task (cronjob on Linux) which checks if the file is in the directory and loads the file into
the table if it exists and the db2 command for that is the command I described in my first comment.
