INSERTEDDATE AS LOADDATE,
ENDDATE,

A,B

The syntax is mostly the same but you need to include units on the addition and subtraction.   Oracle always does math in days, but DB2 requires you to specify the date/time units.

select
ACCNO,
INSERTEDDATE AS LOADDATE,
ENDDATE,
date(A.INSERTEDDATE) AS LOADDATE2,
DATE(B.ENDDATE) AS ENDDATE2
name,
number
from
A,B
WHERE
A.ACCNO = B.ACCNO AND
DATE() > (INSERTEDDATE  + 5 days)
 AND DATE() <  (A.ENDDATE2 -45 days)


I'm assuming you'll fill in values for DATE() in your real query.

if DATE() was intended to be the db2 equivalent of oracle's trunc(sysdate), try

CURRENT DATE  (yes, two words, no underscore)
0
