Problem IC78540 Status: Closed

TBE DB2LOOK TOOL DOESN'T PRODUCE PROPER DDL FOR TABLES WITH
PARENTHESIS IN THE TABLE NAME

product:
DB2 FOR LUW / DB2FORLUW / 910 - DB2
Problem description:
Tbe db2look tool doesn't produce proper DDL for tables with 
parenthesis in the table name.  The DDL produced will have extra 
spaces that will cause the table to be misnamed if this DDL is 
used to recreate. 
 
A simple example: 
  db2sampl 
  echo "connect to sample;" > badtab.sql 
  echo 'CREATE TABLE "BADTABLE(THESE)" (myint int);' >> 
badtab.sql 
  db2 -tvf badtab.sql 
  db2look -d sample -e -o outfile.ddl 
 
Produces this DDL: 
  $ grep -iA2 badtable outfile.ddl 
  -- DDL Statements for table "MSLV97  "."BADTABLE(THESE)" 
  ------------------------------------------------ 
 
  CREATE TABLE "MSLV97  "."BADTABLE ( 
           THESE)" ( "MYINT" INTEGER ) 
           IN "IBMDB2SAMPLEREL" ;
