RE: SQL: how to farm journal: select only oldest and newest record for each cust #



fixed

What is CVTJRN? Is that never than 5.4? Or a non-IBM product?

Thanks

have you looked at any of the dspjrn/cvtjrn type commands. Maybe you could
parse out what you want to a file, then go after what you need from there.

Hi Joel

A quick thought - use a UNION SELECT. This assumes you have some
criteria for the particular set of records - the first SELECT would get
the record with some minimum timestamp, the second SELECT would get the
record with some maximum timestamp.

I'm just flying off the cuff with this - not sure it'd work at all -
depends on how the data comes out. It'll work in a general sense, though.

Is it possible (and simple) to select only two records from the journal
- for each file-RRN combination?


Example:

Users make 20 changes throughout the day to CUST #123 record.

I want to select only the first "before" image and the last "after"
image for that particular cust (and all other custs).

Can SQL select these with a simple statement?

Or is this best done in an HLL pgm?


Thanks
