IBM DB2 Error Message

-510 the table designated by the cursor of the update or delete statement cannot be modified

Reason for the Error

kkkkThe application program attempted to execute an UPDATE or� DELETE WHERE CURRENT OF cursor statement against a table or view that� cannot be updated or deleted.� This can occur for a delete from a� read-only view or for an update in which the cursor was not defined with� the FOR UPDATE clause.� This error code is also returned when the table exists at a remote location and DB2 has employed block fetching because you explicitly declared the cursor FOR FETCH ONLY, or if the application specifies limited block protocol during bind.

Solution

The requested UPDATE or DELETE cannot be performed.
