Procedures that are supplied with Db2

A procedure is an application program that can be started through the SQL CALL statement. The procedure is specified by a procedure name, which may be followed by arguments that are enclosed within parentheses. This information contains syntax diagrams, semantic descriptions, rules, and examples of the use of the system supplied procedures.

Important: Do not create additional versions of Db2-supplied procedures by specifying the VERSION keyword. Only versions that are supplied with Db2 are supported. Additional versions of such routines cause the installation and configuration of Db2-supplied routines to fail.
