Using select statement from input file with DB2 EXPORT

I'm successfully doing an export using the following shell script

#!/bin/ksh

db2 Connect to ALIAS user USERNAME using PASSWORD

db2 "EXPORT TO result.dat OF DEL MODIFIED BY NOCHARDEL COLDEl| select memrecno, memidnum from mpi_memhead fetch first 10 rows only"

db2 terminate

Open in new window


Rather than having my select statement where it is, I'd like to specify a file with the select statement.  My googling isn't helping :-/

Thanks in advance.

Use the shell tools to substitute the file name.

#!/bin/ksh

Export_Database (
  db2 Connect to ALIAS user USERNAME using PASSWORD

  db2 "EXPORT TO $1 OF DEL MODIFIED BY NOCHARDEL COLDEl| select memrecno, memidnum from mpi_memhead fetch first 10 rows only"

  db2 terminate
)                                  

Export_Database SomeFileName.bak

#end

Open in new window



Good Luck!
