Subj:   Re: INSERT INTO big table
From:   Adam DeYoung

Unfortunately, Multiload cannot select from one table to insert into another directly. If you have mainframe connectivity and enough space, you could FastExport the 1 mil rows to a dataset and Multiload the dataset back into the 500 mil rows table.

This may or may not be a better solution with regards to time - it depends on your channel throughput. But you gain the benefit of Multiload's parallelism and restartability without worry of rollback if a system error occurred, and that alone is worth making the change.
