DB2 delete one table constrained by another run from CL

I have a simple delete query with a subselect

Delete from Table1 T1 where F1 in (Select F2 from Table2 T2 where T1.F1 = T2.F2 and T2.F3 =  'constantvalue')

I have done this many times and interactively it works fine, but when I try to execute the sql from a CL with RUNSQLSTM SRCFILE(XX/YY) SRCMBF(ZZZZ) it fails to run with the following error:

SQL7008 Position 1 Table1 in XX not valid for operation

I know that uncorrelated sub-selects can cause issues when running from a CL but that is not the case here, any suggestions?

I experience this error message if I'm doing an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE on a non-journaled file while running under some level of commitment-control except *NONE.

Either start journaling on the file (which would be the better option), or specify *NONE on the "commitment control" parameter of RunSQLStm.
