I think the UDF is a great idea. I have created one (my first) but it doesn't work quite right.
CREATE FUNCTION WDSSYS.GETJOBDATE ( ) RETURNS DATE LANGUAGE CL
SPECIFIC WDSSYS.GETJOBDATE NOT DETERMINISTIC NO SQL CALLED ON NULL INPUT DISALLOW PARALLEL EXTERNAL NAME 'MKIRKPAT/GETJOBDATE' PARAMETER STYLE SQL ;
My CL pgm:
DCL VAR(&JOBDATE) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(6)
DCL VAR(&JOBDATEYMD) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)
CVTDAT DATE(&JOBDATE) TOVAR(&JOBDATEYMD) +
What am I missing? Thanks.
I am not aware of an SQL special register or a built-in
function that would give you a job date. Writing a UDF
that does this would be very simple
though (CL or RPG), and you could reuse it elsewhere.
