Does anyone know of a generic database load utility? Obviously we are talking about free stuff here ;-)

I'm looking to load a CSV file into DB2 v7.0

There are some tools like Squirrel Squirrel Home Page which is a Sourceforge project that is a generic Java based client to DBs. I am pretty certain you can load in files with that... or other tools of that nature.

My experience however suggests that it will probably be best if you just stick with database vendor specific tools. Mostly these types of tools are exponentially faster when it comes to bulk loading data etc. then their generic counterparts.
