Any idea how to get details of how many records were deleted when
using RUNSQL in batch in a CLP? That would be nice.
As noted in a prior discussion, write a program [even a very dynamic
REXX would do] to get the SQLERRD(3) of the SQLCA to identify the number
of rows deleted, instead of using such a generic SQL utility.
What I usually do is DSPFD before and after the RUNSQL.
If knowing what the upcoming DELETE statement would delete is
considered to be sufficiently accurate, then by using the CREATE VIEW
method, the CLP can have a DCLF to read the VIEW to learn the answer.
And to review just the count of rows to be deleted instead of the actual
rows to be deleted, that is easily done by creating another VIEW over
the first. For example:
DCLF DLT_COUNT /* create table qtemp/dlt_count (dlt_count dec(10)
not null ; or whatever required to get rcdfmt lvlid to match the VIEW */
RUNSQL SQL('create view qtemp/dlt_from as ( select * from t18pf
where joentt = ''CA'' and jojob = ''QZLSFILET'' and jopgm = ''QLESPI''
)' ) COMMIT(*NONE)
RUNSQL SQL('create view qtemp/dlt_count as ( select dec(count(*),
10) as dlt_count from qtemp/dlt_from)')
RCVF /* CL var &DLT_COUNT will now have the value of the number of
rows matching the WHERE clause of the upcoming DELETE; i.e. the
where-clause encapsulated in the SELECT of the first CREATE VIEW */
RUNSQL SQL('delete from qtemp/dlt_from') COMMIT(*NONE)
RCVF /* force the DLT_COUNT file to close */
MONMSG CPF0864 EXEC(rcvmsg (*same (*)) *pgmq *excp *none 0 rmv(*yes))
RUNSQL SQL('drop view qtemp/dlt_from cascade)')
