DB2 and DESCRIBE command

I have a table named ACCOUNT, and I verified its existence.

However I can not describe the table in order to verify its structure

What is wrong with the following command ?


db2 => DESCRIBE  ACCOUNT
SQL0104N  An unexpected token "ACCOUNT" was found following "DESCRIBE".
Expected tokens may include:  "OUTPUT".  SQLSTATE=42601
db2 =>
db2 =>
db2 => DESCRIBE  ACCOUNT;
SQL0104N  An unexpected token "ACCOUNT;" was found following "DESCRIBE".
Expected tokens may include:  "OUTPUT".  SQLSTATE=42601
