A data definition file contains SQL statements, including those for creating, altering, or dropping a database. To issue SQL statements through a data definition file, follow these steps:

1. Use a text editor to write the data definition file.
2. Save the file.
3. Process the file with isql.

Use -input in command-line isql or use IBConsole. For more information about command-line isql and IBConsole, see the Operations Guide.
