What is a .BND file?

A .BND file is a special kind of computer file used by IBM DB2 database software. IBM DB2 is a program that helps people and businesses store and manage large amounts of information in databases. The .BND file is important because it helps the software communicate with these databases in a specific way, using something called DB2 CLI, or Call Level Interface. This is a bit like teaching the software a language so it can talk to the database and do tasks like adding, changing, or finding data.

When a new database is created or an old one is updated to work with DB2, a .BND file is made and kept on the server where the database lives. This file is essential for making sure the software can access and work with the database properly.

To open a .BND file, you need to have IBM DB2 software. This is because the .BND file is designed to work specifically with this software, and it contains instructions that only IBM DB2 understands.

Some common names you might see for .BND files include "db2clipk.bnd," which might be used for keeping track of different packages that help the software communicate with the database, or "db2schema.bnd," which could be related to the structure or layout of the database information. Other names like "db2cliws.bnd" and "db2cliv2.bnd" might refer to different versions or specific tasks related to the database.

In summary, if you're working with IBM DB2 databases, the .BND file plays a crucial role in making sure the software can talk to and manage the database correctly. You'll need the IBM DB2 program to open and use these files.
