We are facing sort problems with DB2 V188.8.131.52 on Linux.
When we launch the following query:
select * from PROJECT order by NAME
we get the result you can find in the attachment sortProblem.xls
Is there any reason why we get the uppercase letters before the lowercase letters?
Is there any way we can change this?
We are at the following db2level:
DB21085I Instance "db2inst" uses "32" bits and DB2 code release "SQL09053"
with level identifier "06040107".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v184.108.40.206", "s081118", "MI00255", and Fix Pack
Product is installed at "/opt/IBM/db2/V9.5".
Many thanks in advance!

Re: Sort problem with DB2 V18.104.22.168 on Linux2012-11-13T18:57:46ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.That is how the collating sequence is: Upper before Lower. You can do ORDER BY UCASE(name) will will sort case insensitive.

Probably something to do with the collating sequence you used when creating the database and/or the type of the NAME field in the PROJECT table.
Can you post your DB related parameters and the DDL of PROJECT table?
