I solved some problems like this by stopping the program (in debug) on the statement where your SQLCOD is being tested - take the SQLCOD (ie. -204) and lookup up the message description in the message file QSQLMSG. The message ID will be 'SQLxxxx' where 'xxxx' is the last 4 digits of the SQLCOD, 0204 in this example. Sometimes, the message will shed some light on the problem. hth -----Original Message----- From: rpg400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:rpg400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Guy Henza Sent: Monday, June 21, 2004 12:36 PM To: rpg400-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: SQL Statements in ILE RPG I wrote a nice little embeded SQL in a RPGLE program. I tested the statement in STRSQL and got 2965 rows returned. When I run it in my RPGLE I get 39 rows... C/exec sql declare c1 cursor for C+ select cnme, bsdst#, substring(bssdat,1,6), sum(bsexbs) C+ from bsf100s C+ join brcm on bsdst# = rcusno C+ join rcm on bsdst# = ccust C+ where substring(bssdat,1,6) between :strdat and :enddat C+ and bsrtyp = 'S' C+ group by cnme, bsdst#, substring(bssdat,1,6) C+ order by cnme, bsdst#, substring(bssdat,1,6) C/end-exec C/exec sql C+ open c1 C/end-exec C sqlcod doune 0 C/exec sql C+ FETCH NEXT FROM C1 INTO :icnme, :idst#, :isdat, :iexbs C/end-exec I changed doune 0 to doueq 100 and got most of my expected data. BUT I'm still missing some. The SQLCODE is also set by the database manager after each SQL statement is executed as follows: If SQLCODE = 0 and SQLWARN0 is blank, execution was successful. If SQLCODE = 100, no data was found. For example, a FETCH statement returned no data, because the cursor was positioned after the last row of the result table. If SQLCODE > 0 and not = 100, execution was successful with a warning. If SQLCODE = 0 and SQLWARN0 = 'W', execution was successful with a warning. If SQLCODE < 0, execution was not successful. A complete listing of DB2 UDB for iSeries SQLCODEs and their corresponding SQLSTATEs is provided in the SQL Messages and Codes book in the iSeries Information Center. I tried reading the "SQL Messages and Codes book" and I think Greek would be easier to understand. IF SQLCOD is not equal 0 ang not equal to 100 can I still use the data?
