Problem

When running DB2 programs in Enterprise Server, how can an SQL -818 error be resolved ?


Resolution

When compiling the program, make sure the DB2 compiler directives BINDDIR and BIND are defined.

BINDDIR must be set to the full path of the <pgmname.BND> file that will be generated.
BIND will generate a file <pgmname.BND> in directory pointed to by BINDDIR.

After the compilation is completed and the <pgmname.BND> file has been generated, a manual BIND against DB2
must be done before the program can be used, and the SQL -808 or -818 avoided.

Please see IBM documentation on how to use BIND from DB2 command prompt.
