I'm very new to using IBM Syntax, specifically a need for OPENQUERY.
I would appreciate it if someone could show me a small example of how to grab, convert, pass data to SQL.
I listed exactly what I'm trying to do below. Many thanks to whoever could help. :)

---------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE IBM DB2 DATABASE I want to convert/pull data from:

---------------------------------------------------------

IBM DB = SD0D1, Two Tablenames = Dist_State & Dist_State_Nodes. 

Two Columns (data I want to convert/import). Column 1 = Dist_State.LABEL (Unicode String, Length = 32) Values contained here are just application names (i.e. MSOFFICE). Column 2 = Dist_State_Nodes.Node_Name (Unicode String, Length = 251). Values contained here are Computer Name (i.e. JOESPC).
 

---------------------------------------------------------

DESTINATION SQL DATABASE I want to Convert/Import data to:

---------------------------------------------------------

SQL DB Name = DMS, Two Tablenames = Dms.dbo.Node.Name (Varchar(75), not null) &  Dms.dbo.Packages.Name (Varchar(251), not null). 

Both of these columns will need to have an PK/Identity Seed.
 

I need to figure out how to use OPENQUERY to convert/import data by getting data from

(DB2) Dist_State.LABEL --> (SQL) Dms.dbo.Packages.Name db/table/column AND

(DB2) Dist_State_Nodes.Node_Name --> (SQL) Dms.dbo.Nodes.Name.

By Identity Seed I mean Auto Row numbering.

regarding the identity columns, just define them as you would with any other table
