    One "solution" is to store them on large, inexpensive PC disk drives rather than directly in the IFS. A Windows shared network PC drive can be accessed through the /QNTC file system from your AS/400. A Linux shared directory can be accessed with NFS by mounting the Linux share. If stored on a PC, it's probably also a good idea to burn them to CDs or DVDs for archival storage. However, you could simply have a small AS/400 that needs more or larger disk drives. You should post the model, the version/release of the OS and the number and capacity of your disk drives. Finally, if the IFS is really "full", your system will come to a stop. If it is still running, then something else is the problem. Tom

    can we keep these docs in physical file in field ? Technically, yes, you can. But it will potentially take more space to do it that way. It might not take more space, but eventually the overhead of the database will bring additional maintenance issues. When the sheer volume of documents is an issue, then there will be related database maintenance issues that will require DB2 knowledge that becomes highly technical. I have to think that there is an application design problem that is involved. It should be easy to store documents on relatively inexpensive PC disk drives. Your AS/400 can access documents on a PC just like it can access them in its own IFS. It should look as if it is just storing in a different path. But if the application isn't flexible enough to use a different directory path or if it is limited to using only folders and documents in the /QDLS file system rather than full IFS directories, then I can understand your difficulties. Folders in /QDLS are very limited compared to general directories in the /root file system. Tom
