DB2 Administrative SQL Cookbook: Listing Row-Organized Tables
The DB2 Administrative SQL Cookbook is a series of blog entries that are short. Each focuses on one or a few SQL statements that may be useful when administering DB2 databases. They usually address system catalog views, snapshot tables/views, or snapshot table functions that are standard in all DB2 LUW implementations. The version the SQL has been tested on is noted.
This statement lists tables that are not system tables, but that are organized by row. It may be useful in a BLU database to identify any tables that are row-organized, and may need different maintenance or other treatment than the column-organized tables
This has been tested on DB2 10.5 Fixpack 5. It should work on any 10.5 implementation. It will not work on previous versions, because table organization was not an available column in syscat.tables, or even a concept that made sense before 10.5.

Caveats and Modifications
Hard numbers are used to limit the length of the schema and table names. If you have longer schema and table names, you may want to increase these numbers.
You can easily reverse this to list column-organized tables by specifying a TABLEORG of ‘C’.
Strictly speaking “with ur” is not needed, but I’m in the habit of adding it to the end of every query that doesn’t have an isolation requirement.
