RC/Alter performs alters that are not possible through the DB2 ALTER commands; these changes require dropping and re-creating objects and their dependencies.
RC/Alter simply requires that you indicate the alterations to be made to the object. CA RC/Update automatically determines whether DB2 or RC/Alter is the most efficient way to make the alteration.
RC/Alter allows you to perform the following types of alters that are not possible through the DB2 ALTER commands:
  • Alters where changes require dropping and re-creating objects and their dependencies
  • Alters where changes are too complex and require help generating the DDL (using a fuller and more extensive analysis)
RC/Alter is also used to perform certain drop requests that require a fuller and more extensive analysis.
Optionally, you may request that RC/Alter be used to create, alter, and drop objects that do not otherwise require extensive analyses. To make this request, set the CA RC/Update Operation Mode to A on the product main menu or respond with A on the DDL Execution Confirmation, DDL Execution Warning, or Implicit Drop Warning pop-up screens.
RC/Alter simply requires that the user indicate the alterations to be made to the object. CA RC/Update automatically determines whether DB2 or RC/Alter is the most efficient way to make the alteration. For specific information regarding which changes require RC/Alter, see Alter Requirements.
