Subj:   Re: Fastload has no worktable and logtable?
From:   Gorner, Tomas


  If this is so then how come it logs the checkpoints?  

FASTLOAD uses SYSADMIN.FASTLOG as a restart log table.

  Why does MLoad need a worktable and Fast load doesnt?  

I guess the reason is that you can only run a fastload job against an empty table with no SI. Which means that it does not need to distinguish between "loaded" data and data already in the table. It just inserts the records on the fly.

Hope this helps.
