Using ODBC, I only seem to be able to get the long name returned. Is there any way to change or affect which column names are returned via ODBC?
Versions of my database has been deployed on Oracle (which does not support the column alias feature) and iSeries, and the tool I am using to copy data between them is hitting problems with column-matching. Ideally I would not have to recode the application, or amend the DB2 database to get around this.
Unfortunately it sounds like you're having to deal with the complexities that arise when you move a copy of your DB2 data to another database.
