You could also experiment with something like this in System i Navigator...

SELECT 'LABEL ON COLUMN ' CONCAT TABLE_SCHEMA CONCAT '/' CONCAT TABLE_NAME
CONCAT ' (' CONCAT CAST(COLUMN_NAME AS CHAR(10)) CONCAT
' IS ''' CONCAT SUBSTR(COLUMN_TEXT,1,40) CONCAT '(' CONCAT
TRIM(COLUMN_NAME) CONCAT ')'');'
FROM QSYS2/SYSCOLUMNS
WHERE TABLE_NAME ='RCM' AND TABLE_SCHEMA ='mylib';

...which will give a results like so...

LABEL ON COLUMN GS1000/RCM (CMID IS 'Record ID (CM/CZ)
(CMID)');
LABEL ON COLUMN GS1000/RCM (CCUST IS 'Customer Number
(CCUST)');
LABEL ON COLUMN GS1000/RCM (CNME IS 'Customer Name
(CNME)');
LABEL ON COLUMN GS1000/RCM (CAD1 IS 'Company Address Line 1
(CAD1)');
LABEL ON COLUMN GS1000/RCM (CAD2 IS 'Company Address Line 2
(CAD2)');

...which when copy/paste is used back into System i Navigator and run,
will result in the following results...

Select * FROM mylib/RCM

Record ID (CM/CZ) Customer Number Customer Name
Company Address Line

1
(CMID) (CCUST) (CNME)
(CAD1)
CM 1,001 MYCOMP1
MYCOMP1 ADDR 1
CM 2,001 MYCOMP2
MYCOMP2 ADDR 1
CM 2,002 MYCOMP3
MYCOMP3 ADDR 1

(alignment will be out, but you should get the idea)

column headings

Hi Margie .....

Since you wrote "BPCS" I'm speculating that the files you refer to were
generated from AS/SET. Column headings in AS/SET-generated files are
frequently difficult to interpret. For example: column headings for
"invoice date," "due date," and "ship date" all read "DATE" .... which
isn't helpful when retrieved with SQL or when printed.

"Decipher" software performs a one-time fix that makes BPCS column
headings understandable. More info:
<http://www.unbeatenpath.com/software/decipher/fixBPCS.pdf>
http://www.unbeatenpath.com/software/decipher/fixBPCS.pdf

The .pdf explains the root AS/SET issue.
By the way, when Decipher fixes column headings, it also performs a
one-time fix for edit codes and edit words.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Field Column Headings of BPCS Files

Dear ALL,
Apology if my question is not exactly related to BPCS. But the data I am
using comes from BPCS files. I was using SQL and when selecting to show
data
file records, the column headings showed the field text and not the field
names. Can anyone let me know how to show the field names in the column
heading instead of field text. I am not sure if it has to do with how the
BPCS files was created. Anyhow, how can I control it.

Sample of my SQL statement: SELECT * from RCM

Thank you so much for your help.

Regards,
Margie
