Convert Logical Files from DB2 AS/400

In order to convert logical files from DB2 AS400, we need to have DDS file for each logical file that should be converted. A path to the folder where these DDS files are located on the machine where the conversion process is running should be specified in “Advanced” window on “Choose a Source Database”.

After that on “Specify Database Objects” page you will need to select the required logical files from the list of extracted objects.

Our tool will read information about objects extracted from DB2 database and when the tool will define that the object is a Logical File, it will check the folder with DDS files and will try to read the structure of this logical file from the appropriate DDS file.

Here you can find a step by step guide on how to extract the DDS files for logical files that should be converted: How to Extract Logical and Physical Files from DB2 iSeries (AS/400).

Please note:
If you are using DB2 iSeries 7.2 version or higher, you don't need to extract the DDS files and provide a path to them. You just need to specify logical files for conversion on the “Specify Database Objects” page, the way you do it with other object types.
