Loading CSV file into DB2 Database

Loading CSV file into DB2 Database

Loading CSV file into DB2 Database


I am actually running DB2 on Amazon Virtual Instance and accessing DB2 via Technology Explorer web interface.

I am trying to load a CSV file into the table that I created but it is giving an error SQL 46...

I tried both Load and Import commands as
LOAD FROM /home/tc/myfile.del of DEL
INTO TABLE mytable(column1,column2)

It seems like the file path is not understood, I tried putting file inside the Virtual Instance's home directory and then calling it from Technology Explorer but it did not work.
I am not confident if i am correctly pointing it to the directory or file perhaps should be in a specific folder for db2 to pick up (i thought it will pick up the path from /home directory)

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Many Thanks,
