Display index partitions like Tablespace partitions because of RPN conversion

We have converted Tablespaces to RPN with also the possibility to alter the DSSIZE of indexes per partition. So it would be nice to see those DSSIZE per partition within ADBL as you see by Tablespaces (see attachment) instead of take a look in all...

Indication of the reason for conversion by drop/create

In our environment, we try to execute all changes to DB2 tables online via Alter commands if possible. However, there are a lot of reasons why in some cases the Alter is not possible and as a consequence Admintool correctly chooses the conversion ...

ADB2GEN: generate DDL for hidden ROWID columns

We have several tables that contain LOB columns and thus also a generated rowid column. If an extra column is added, it will be placed at the end. If we now generate DDL for a table with a LOB column via ADB2GEN, then the generated rowid column is...

Allow for Altering the Partitioning Columns Through Panels
