To create a new Data Compare strategy, entries must be made in the fields as described in this section.
Follow these steps:
  1. Make entries in the following fields:
    • O (Options)
      Specifies the option next to the appropriate strategy or data set name. Enter
      C
      to create a new strategy. This option is valid only on the first line.
    • STRATEGY
      Specifies the strategy name. Eight-character maximum.
    • DESCRIPTION
      Specifies the description of the strategy (25-character maximum).
    • CREATOR
      Specifies the User ID of the creator of the strategy. The current ID is automatically inserted when you are creating a new strategy. The strategy name and creator together uniquely identify the strategy.
    • TP (Type)
      Specifies the type of strategy. Type
      D
      . A Data Compare strategy is the only kind of strategy that can be created at this time.
    • SO (Share Option)
      Designates the share option. This is the authorization within 
      RC/Update
      for others to use or update the strategy.
    • Y
      1. Specifies that other users can use, but not update, your strategy.
    • U
      1. Specifies that others can use and update the strategy.
    • N
      1. Specifies that others cannot view or use the strategy. (Strategies created by other users that were saved with a share option of N will not be displayed.)
    • SRC SSID
      Specifies the source
      Db2
      subsystem ID. This is the
      Db2
      subsystem that contains the
      Db2
      objects you want to compare. The source SSID can be different from the subsystem that contains the strategy, and from the target SSID. The source SSID must be entered at definition time. Enter
      ?
      to access the
      Db2
      SSID/Location selection panel.
    • USER, DATE, AND TIME
      Indicates the user who last updated the strategy, and the date and time the strategy was created or last updated. Nothing needs to be entered in these fields when creating a new strategy.
  2. Press Enter to continue creating a strategy.
    The Create Data Compare Strategy screen appears.
  3. Press F3 (End) to return to the Main Menu.
