Handling tables with reserved words/keywords in Informatica

Handling tables with reserved words/keywords in Informatica

Handling tables with reserved words/keywords in Informatica

Hi All,
I am currently facing issues where table names are keywords/reserved words.

Database : DB2
Table Names : User, Template.

I have overriden the select query in "Source Qualifier" so while selecting data from source. Till this step everthing works fine while running the workflow.

But when we try to load the data in Target Informatica throws following error.

1. [IBM][CLI Driver][DB2/NT] SQL0204N "DB2ADMIN.USER" is an undefined name SQLSTATE = 42704

    I checked in target db, user table is present under DB2ADMIN schema.

2. I tried adding a Update Strategy Transformation in the mapping, so that we can override the SQL in target. After adding the manual query also Informatica is not able to load data.
Following is the error we are facing after adding the overridden query.
    Thread: WRITER_1_*_1
    Process ID: 32415
    Message Code: WRT_8118
    ERROR: Target table [user] does not allow UPDATE
        Row # [1] in bad file

3. Template table is a system table as well and when we try to add a custom query in Source Qualifier we are getting "Table space access is not allowed" error, following are the details.
    Severity: ERROR
    Timestamp: 1/20/2011 10:33:14 AM
    Node: node01_PODETLSAPP01
    Thread: READER_1_1_1
    Process ID: 12348
    Message Code: RR_4035
    Message: SQL Error [
    Database driver error...
    Function Name : Fetch
    Native error code = -290
    DB2 Fatal Error
    [IBM][CLI Driver][DB2/NT] SQL0290N  Table space access is not allowed.  SQLSTATE=55039
     sqlstate = 55039

Please help. As i am stuck because of these 3 issues from 3-4 days.


RE: Handling tables with reserved words/keywords in Informatica


I strongly recommend you change the names of your Tables. Using/Naming any object with Reserved/Key words is an extremely bad idea, not only in Informatica, but for any System Development.
