RE: AW: SQL output to csv



fixed

You can always do something like this
$

===> db2 -S "select '\"'||class||'\",\"'||createdby||'\"' from rjsflow.workpiececlass";

and pipe the output to your file. Use grep in the string of pipes to take out the headings and/or row count if you need to.

$

===> db2 -S "select '\"'||class||'\",\"'||createdby||'\"' from rjsflow.workpiececlass;" | grep , > output.csv

Which produces

cat output.csv
"AP Demo Class","Administrator"
"APDemo","Administrator"
"Insurance_App_Class","Administrator"
"PDI Approval Class","Administrator"
"S-Sheet_C","Administrator"
"AP Invoice","Pete"
"AP Invoice Batch ","Pete"
"ABCD","Administrator"
"Job App Class","Administrator"
"single'quote","Administrator"
"aa","Administrator"
$

Set your overrides within QSH with the system command.

Dan,

If I use QSH does it "honor" the file overrides set before the session
is started? I could use the CREATE ALIAS command as Tommy suggested
but
I'd rather not go that direction if OVRDBF will suffice.

Pete, try the QSH db2 command. I think with a little stdout redirection
you
might be able to get a csv directly.

Also there's a neat PERL script here: http://www-

that could easily be adapted to produce a csv file.

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.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

Betreff: Re: AW: SQL output to csv

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!

If it's only a one shot, you may use IBM i Navigator - Database - Run

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.
