Using the IBM Explorer, you can drag a procedure or function and drop iton a forms designer. As shown in Figure 18 , a new DB2 data connection object is created if no other data connection object with similar properties exists. An associated DB2 command is also created to invoke the procedure or function. Unlike the drop of a table or view, no data adapter object is created. This is a standard behavior, becauseadditional procedures and functions may be required to perform the update, delete, and insert, assuming these operations are even possible.
