Quick Beginnings for DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition for UNIX

Using the Command Center

On OS/2, Windows 95 and Windows NT operating systems, the Command Center provides an interactive window that allows you to:

To invoke the Command Center on OS/2:

  1. Double-click the DB2 for OS/2 folder.

  2. Double-click on the Command Center icon.

To invoke the Command Center on Windows 95 and Windows NT:

  1. Click on Start.

  2. Select Programs->DB2 for Windows->Command Center.

The Command Center contains a large input area in which you type your commands. To run the commands you have entered, select the Start or stop execution icon from the menu bar, or use CTRL+Enter.


Do not type the commands with a db2 prefix; instead, enter the command as follows:

   list node directory;

If you want to run multiple commands, you must end each command with a semicolon, then press Enter to start the next command on a new line.

After you run a command, the Command Center displays the Results window, which informs you how the commands are proceeding.

To recall commands that you have typed in interactive mode, click on the arrow beside the narrow input window. To save commands entered in interactive mode as scripts, select Script->Save as from the menu bar.

Figure hint not displayed.

If you want to store commonly used SQL statements or DB2 commands as scripts, click on the Script icon from the main tool bar.
