Hi tsmuser10,

if you look to the "backups" or "archives" Db2 tables, the meaning of HL_NAME (High-Level-Name) and LL_NAME (Low-Level-Name) is a little bit different, depending on the type of the object.

if the type is "DIR"

HL_NAME & LL_NAME both are pointing to directories / paths levels.

if the type ="FILE", HL_NAME is the dir/path where the LL_NAME is the file object "inside/under" the dir/path.

hope this helps

hl_name is full path to an object
ll_name is the name of object itself
If you concatenate filespace_name+hl_name+ll_name you get absolute path for an object.
