Hi,

  I'm on DB2 UDB 8.2
  Is there a way to query the database against all the procedures/functions/triggers to see if a particular string has been used?
  Please advise.

Thanks! I queried something like this.
select distinct routinename from SYSCAT.ROUTINES 
where upper(text) like '%SUBSIDY%'

Open in new window


But upper is not working on this column. If i don't use upper or lower, i'm loosing many procedures which use subsidy in different case sensitivities.

How can i run this? Please help.

what is subsidy?
is it an object name?
if so, you can search for it in the tables that document object dependencies

The whole purpose of this search is to get all the routines that use Subsidy, as it is changing into something else. So, this search should get us a list of all procedures/functions etc that use subsidy.

  Can't we use UPPER() or LOWER() on a CLOB?

so this is not good

you can try to use the db2look utility to generate create statements of all your objects, and then use a regular text search tool (like notepad) to find that value

or, you can write a procedure that loops through the clob column, cuts it into smaller varchar values and check against them but it would be far more complicated
