Re: Creating SQL View in CL closes SQL cursor in RPG program

In my RPG program, I call a CL that has a RUNSQLSTM command that uses
the commands in a TXT source member to create an SQL view in QTEMP. The
only command executed is "CREATE VIEW". When this occurs, there is
already another, unrelated SQL cursor that is open and being processed
in the RPG program. When the view is created by the CL program, as soon
as control is returned to the RPG program, the "unrelated" SQL cursor is
closed.

There must be a reason the OPEN happens before the CALL; perhaps if we
understood why that temporal order is required...

I realize this is a very awkward way of creating a view but it was
decided that this is the best way to address the unique needs of the
application. Does anyone know what's going on here? I posted here
because I don't think this really has much to do with RPG.

It would be very interesting to understand why dynamic SQL was not
considered a better fit.
