This is normal behavior for all the query functions, namely SQL, Query/400,
& OPNQRYF. In all cases the result set will be in arrival sequence unless
you've specified the use of an index. In OPNQRYF with KEYFLD, in SQL with
ORDER BY, and in Query/400 with the Sort fields option. (Join logicals are
probably unpredictalbe in this case, since they are not a single
file—interesting to test).

BTW, did you know that you can also use the RUNQRY command with empty
parentheses, like this?

        RUNQRY () filename
