Rob: There are a couple ways to coerce CL into "writing" to disk -- I won't count QM query since you're using it. However, try making these changes: Assuming four CHAR columns, for your QM SQL -- INSERT INTO OUTQFIX VALUES(&q&OUTQFIX_OUTQ&q, &q&OUTQFIX_AUTHLIST&q, &q&OUTQFIX_CHANGED&q, &q&OUTQFIX_MSGID&q) And to your STRQMQRY command: STRQMQRY QMQRY(OUTQFIX) + SETVAR((OUTQFIX_OUTQ &OUTQFIX_OUTQ) + (OUTQFIX_AUTHLIST &OUTQFIX_AUTHLIST) + (OUTQFIX_CHANGED &OUTQFIX_CHANGED) + (OUTQFIX_MSGID &OUTQFIX_MSGID) + ('q' '''') + ) That shifts the burden for quoting mostly to the SQL statement. The CL merely needs to pass a single quote into the &q substitution variable that's used wherever needed. You can vary that in numerous ways, but you probably can get the idea. Too bad it isn't just a list option for the SETVAR() parm. Consider this possibility if you have QShell installed: call QZDFMDB2 ( + 'INSERT INTO OUTQFIX VALUES(''' *cat + &OUTQFIX_OUTQ *cat ''',''' *cat + &OUTQFIX_AUTHLIST *cat ''',''' *cat + &OUTQFIX_CHANGED *cat ''',''' *cat + &OUTQFIX_MSGID *cat '')' + ) And also note that QLGSORT will take an input buffer as a parm and output to a sorted outfile. The input buffer in your case would simply be a CL variable with this value: [ &OUTQFIX_OUTQ *cat &OUTQFIX_AUTHLIST *cat &OUTQFIX_CHANGED *cat &OUTQFIX_MSGID ] The buffer can be defined for one record at a time or multiple records.
