AW: SQL output to csv


Hi Pete,

If it's only a one shot, you may use IBM i Navigator - Database - Run an SQL
Open Options and select Allow Save Results

Then execute your queries, position on the result, right click and SAVE

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

Betreff: SQL output to csv

I need to extract data from a few tables and create a csv file. I sorted
out the SQL to select the data but the only way I can think of getting csv
output is to create a table and then use an insert statement to write the
data into the table and then use cpytoimpf to create the csv. Making things
more interesting is that the source files are multi-membered.

Any shortcuts here? I can override the files used as input and wrap the
whole thing in a CL command but if someone knows of a better way, I am all
ears. Running IBM i 7.1 if it makes a difference.
