TechTip: Struggling with Those DB2 Web Query Functions?

Help is available! Learn about the handy Function Assist feature available in the DB2 Web Query Developer Workbench tool.

gene_cobbWritten by Gene Cobb

DB2 Web Query is loaded with built-in functions to help you transform your raw DB2 for i data into something more meaningful and useful for use in your reports, graphs, dashboards, and compound documents. Some of these functions have multiple parameters and a limited number of acceptable values, so unless you have been working with the product for some time, it may not be obvious how to implement the correct format, syntax, and values to make them work. Wouldn't it be nice if there was an interface complete with help text and examples to guide you through the process of defining these functions?

You have a farm of IBM i servers with a collection of outdated hardware, highly customized applications, and an impatient management team that would just as easily scrap you and your colleagues along with the jumble of wires that only you understand. What to do? Go to the cloud—the cloud gateway, that is.
