Error description

  • db2move currently doesn't possess the capability to parse '--'
    comments and it just skips over them. So even when you're trying
    to copy schema without a dot in the comments, it is still
    treating the comments as part of the procedure.
    
    The reason you see error with case " -- xyz%.%" is because
    instead of treating these as comments we try to parse tokens
    inside this which results in some error.
    
    We have the code to handle comments enclosed under /* */ but the
    code to handle '--' doesn't exist and hence db2move treats '--'
    comments as part of the procedure itself.
    
    Workaround temporarily is using comments /* */
