Everybody should know who you are dating with. In case you don't know, here is an example to know more about your current date:
To find out what was going on yesterday, the following might come in handy:
values(current date - 1 day)
Many people wonder whether they and their date will match up. I always know when looking at the "date compatibility".
get db cfg
...Date compatibility = OFF
Well, this doesn't look too promising, but I know a way around. I can set the DB2_COMPATIBILITY_VECTOR and then look try again (requires instance restart and new database - this is life!).
get db cfg
...Date compatibility = ON
This looks much better and promising and I am sure that my (so far Oracle-based) application and DB2 are the perfect match. And because of the right financial details (licensing, maintenance, HR costs, ...) and properties like automatic maintenance (who would like that one in a household?), compression (are the cabinets and the attic crammed?), and performance they seem to move towards the "happily ever after" ending....
