AW: SQL output to csv



fixed

Birgitta,

Does it support MONMSG? I can work around some of the overrides, etc in the SQL script but MONMSG is a cheap way of ignoring errors. I am seeing either that MONMSG is not supported or an error that the parameter MSGID is invalid in the script I am attempting. Perhaps an example where MONMSG is used?

Hi Pete,

It is possible to perform any CL command (that does not need an output
screen).
So it is possible executing an OVRDBF command just before the SELECT
command.
You simply have to prefix the CL command with CL: and end it with semi colon
(;), It is even possible prompting the CL command with the F4 function key.

Birgitta and Rob,

I haven't used either fat or thin client of iNav do SQL'ish things before.
Is there a way to set overrides for file members using that interface?
RUNSQLSTM could be run after the file overrides are set but again it would
be at least a two stepper: Create the file and then copy it to the IFS.

I'll take a look at iNav and see about the file member stuff as well.

Thanks!

Hi Pete,

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

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

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.
