RE:     RE: IDDU, S36 & AS/400 SQL & RPG

Eric;
I want to go on RECORD, (and I don't want to start a ROW  with anybody,)  
But, I think we should TABLE this discussion and circlular FILE it.
(I might have said this a TUPLE of times, whenever I thought it was
in the DOMAIN of the topic. So don't give the 3rd DEGREE.)
And I don't think my DATA is off BASE except for a few SELECT times.
To prove it, READ my COLUMN in next month's magazine.

Someone said
>To use the files in SQL I believe you have to create an SQL table,   
instead
of a
>CRTPF or CRTLF.

Someone else said;
Uh ... wrong.    Thats the nice thing on the AS/400 a *FILE is a *FILE
as opposed to the PC where a file is a .EXE a .XLS a .DOC a .DLL a .ETC
and it's up to the application to open it up and say WHAT IS THIS JUNK
or whatever runtime message each package gives you(like.. Sorry; this
is not a Powerpoint Presentation).

Anyway,  SQL sees a PF created from the CRTPF command exactly like it see
a table created using the CREATE TABLE and vice versa, etc, and so on.
