The SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_EXPORT_QUERY system procedure
exports the results of a SELECT statement to an operating system file.
For security concerns, and to avoid accidental file damage, this
EXPORT procedure does not export data into an existing file. You must specify
a filename in the EXPORT procedure that does not exist. When you run the
procedure the file is created and the data is exported into the new file.
data is exported using a delimited file format.
SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_EXPORT_QUERY(IN SELECTSTATEMENT VARCHAR(32672),
IN FILENAME VARCHAR(32672), IN COLUMNDELIMITER CHAR(1),
IN CHARACTERDELIMITER CHAR(1), IN CODESET VARCHAR(128))
result is returned from the procedure.
- An input argument of type VARCHAR(32672) that specifies the select statement
(query) that will return the data to be exported. Passing a NULL value will
result in an error.
- Specifies the name of a new file to which the data is to be exported.
If the path is omitted, the current working directory is used. If the name
of a file that already exists is specified, the export procedure returns an
error. The specified location of the file should refer to the server-side
location if you are using the Network Server. Specifying a NULL value results
in an error. The FILENAME parameter takes an input argument
that is a VARCHAR (32672) data type.
- An input argument of type CHAR(1) that specifies a column delimiter. The
specified character is used in place of a comma to signal the end of a column.
Passing a NULL value will use the default value; the default value is a comma
- An input argument of type CHAR(1) that specifies a character delimiter.
The specified character is used in place of double quotation marks to enclose
a character string. Passing a NULL value will use the default value; the default
value is a double quotation mark (").
- An input argument of type VARCHAR(128) that specifies the code set of
the data in the exported file. The name of the code set should be one of the
Java-supported character encodings. Data is converted from the database code
set to the specified code set before writing to the file. Passing a NULL value
will write the data in the same code set as the JVM in which it is being executed.
If authentication and SQL authorization are both enabled, only the
database owner has
execute privileges on this procedure by default. See "Enabling user
authentication" and "Setting the SQL standard authorization mode" in the
Java DB Developer's Guide for more information. The
database owner can grant access to other users. The user must also have SELECT
privileges on the table.
For additional information on using this procedure, see the section
"Importing and exporting data" in the
Java DB Server and Administration Guide.
The following example shows how to export
the information about employees in Department 20 from the STAFF table in the
SAMPLE database to the myfile.del file.
CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_EXPORT_QUERY('select * from staff where dept =20',
'c:/output/awards.del', null, null, null);
