Exception / Error handlers in DB2?

Exception / Error handlers in DB2?

(OP)
I have a bunch of SQL scripts (with shell script wrappers) to unload data like so

        

CODE

EXPORT TO /tmp/out.csv OF DEL MODIFIED BY NOCHARDEL  COLDEL, DATESISO
    MESSAGES /tmp/out.msg SELECT WIDGETID
        ...

I want to add an error handler to the script the way Oracle does it

    

CODE

WHENEVER SQLERROR EXIT FAILURE;
    SPOOL  /tmp/out.csv;
    SELECT WIDGETID...
    SPOOL OFF;

According to DB2's documentation, this can be done in stored procedures, C, Perl, REXX....nothing else.

Has anyone done this in SQL scripts? Can you provide pointers?

CODE

Running  DB2/LINUXX8664 9.7.2.

Suggest you believe the documentation (assuming this is the IBM documentation for the proper release of DB2). . . .
