after hitting the send button, thought i should have mentioned
that i tried that. got back message that DB didn't exist. went
so far as to create a new database with same number of characters
in name; copy the data directory in C:\DB2; change names and
directory numbers in the files. still won't get rid of it.
tried UNCATALOG with ODBC option: said that was successful,
but the little blighters won't go away.
