Q

Copy multiple files into one DB2 file

How do you copy multiple stream files into one DB2 file using wildcard (*) at the cpyfrmstmf command?

 
CPYFRMSTMF FROMSTMF('/usr/sap/bgt/edilink/snd/orde/orde*+  
             TOMBR('/qsys.lib/sap.lib/edibgt.file/edibgt+
             .mbr') MBROPT(*REPLACE)    

You can't - CPYFRMSTMF does not allow patterns (wildcard characters) to be specified. If you're trying to take multiple stream files to one database file you have to issue the command multiple times, using MBROPT(*ADD).
