Thanks for your reply Elvis
Yep, you are right. Creating an SQL view for a specific member is NOT
However, I've not given up, but I am looking into what has also been
suggested and that is to create a Logical for that member and have the
program do what the view was supposed to do.

I don't think it can be done (creating SQL view for a specific member).
I'd create a permanent ALIAS for that member and put the SQL logic in a
SELECT statement inside embedded SQL.
Then modularize that procedure so it's called by other parts of the
application that need to access that specific result set.

Other possibility is DECLARE GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE.... but I don't think
that'll perform as well as the previous suggestion.

Subject: Creating a view

Hi guys
I have been approached with the following problem that has me scratching

We have a file that contains multiple members. A view is required against
ONE of those members.
Is this possible, and if so how?

I contemplated creating an ALIAS within qtemp but (unless I'm doing
something wrong) I am stopped from creating a view over this ALIAS
I also thought of creating another temporary file within QTEMP that would
have the data that would be needed and then regenerating the data each
every time that the "VIEW" would be inquired upon, but this takes quite a
Anybody any ideas?

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
Thanks in advance
