DB2 sql:
Is it possible change a viewA that is called from another viewB, without delete the second one?
At the moment I have a viewA,
then a viewB that uses viewA.
I want to change viewA without drop it, because if I drop it,  viewB has be dropped too.
And I would like only modify viewA,
something like CHGPF command, in DDS structure...

You need to drop the dependent objects, drop the view, re-create the altered view, and recreate any dependent objects.

So you know that you can retrieve the SQL ddl for the views involved using Navigator?   As a result recreating a dependent view only takes a few seconds, since you can retrieve the ddl to a file, drop the view, and then just re-run the saved SQL ddl. To restore the view.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Hi bob,

I don't believe there is any other way. To my knowledge, "DB2 for i" does not have an ALTER VIEW statement. I even checked the documentation for V7R1, and it doesn't seem to exist there, either.

You'll have to retrieve the source of the view and recreate them manually.

HTH,
DaveSlash
