     Couldn't you create a view joining the two tables together (if like 
     fields exist??) and then execute an update statement?  Perhaps it is 
     worth trying.  
     
     Let me know if it works.

Michael:
     
Short answer is no.  However, IBM has big plans in V4R2 or something for this. I
guess same time as RUNSQLSTM allows select clauses.  AS/400 SQL is much more 
advanced than Microsoft SQL which allows such nonsense :-)
