Is there a way to change LEI's collating sequence to match DB2?

The collating sequence for DB2 is different than LEI. Therefore, old records are being treated as new records because the source and target lists are sorted differently, resulting in a duplicate insert error in DB2. I don't want to change the collating sequence in the DB2 table. Is there a way to change LEI's collating sequence to match DB2?
The collating sequence of probably every external system could always be different from any other, including Lotus Notes. You have to compensate for that fact by using the Order Metaconnector, which can reorder a result set on the fly during an LEI Activity's execution. This will not change the data in DB2 and does not require you to physically modify the sequencing, but can ensure the data on both sides is ordered in the right sequence. If Notes is the "other" data set, make sure the View used by LEI is sorted in the right order. Everything you need to setup an Order Metaconnector is referenced in the LEI User Guide database.
