Difference between IBMLOAD and BMCLOAD

Post by mkk157 » Wed Dec 26, 2007 11:05 am

Dear Expert,

I came across 2 PROC's to load DB2 table. they are IBMLOAD and BMCLOAD.

Is there any difference between these two. In performance wise or in any other factors.

What are all the available ways to load a DB2 Table.
If u can dream it, U can do it.

The IBM Load/Unload utility is much more flexible but the BMC Load/Unload utility is faster.
