Value 00000 on variable &PART in TEMPLATE for partitioned by growth tablespaces

We would like that value of &PART becomes 00000 for partitioned by growth tablespaces on the template's DSN. The response on PMR 27187,999,838 is that this needs to be a RFE.

As you can see in PMR 27187,999,838, we have processes that does a full image copy in a DB2, then he does an unload of this files to another DB2 and does a load with the file generated by this unload.

We have problems with the templates when the tablespace is universal partitioned by growth, because the copy produces &PART = 00000 and HPUnload tries to read and generates &PART = 00001 and load tries to read &PART = 00000.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request. While we view all the enhancement requests we receive as valuable and we would like to implement all of them, in an effort to have maximum transparency we are closing the ones that don't currently appear on our two year product roadmap.
