This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.
email@example.com - Use this email to suggest enhancements to the Ideas process or request help from IBM for submitting your Ideas.
Another vote for this. It looks like I have a lot of work ahead of me since we can't simply rename a column!
I must ReDesign a big old Database and need this option, asap.
We have been running across this issue lately. I will also put this in as a LUG requirement.
Certainly needed to keep db2 functionality in line with other DBMS... voted...
IBM will use this request as input to planning but no commitment is made or implied. This request will be updated in the future if IBM implements it.
IBM has received the requirement and is evaluating it. IBM will provide a response after evaluation is complete.
The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that should be addressed. While the issue may be due to user error, correcting the error can be difficult and this RFE would make it easier.
Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

I sent an email to Phil asking for more information.
