Subject: Re: SQL output to csv

You could write a small RPG program embedding the SQL and then rather than CPYxxxx as a separate step use my Open Access CSV handler which will do all the work for you - just use a regular WRITE in the RPG and magic happens!

You can find the article (the bit you need anyway) here:

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.
