A guess (and definitely just a guess) is that *NL stands for "newline" and
that this error means the SQL parser hit the end of the line unexpectedly.

>                           QRYSLT('LSTCHG *GE "' *CAT
>                &BEGUPD + *CAT '" *AND LSTCHG *LE "'
>                *CAT + &ENDUPD *CAT '" *AND RECTYP
>                = "M" ')

I'm not sure how this is SUPPOSED to look, but the "+" should always and
only be at the end of the line when attempting to concatenate a string
together.  Your line should probably be something like:

   QRYSLT('LSTCHG *GE "' *CAT &BEGUPD +
          *CAT '" *AND LSTCHG *LE "' *CAT +
          &ENDUPD *CAT '" *AND RECTYP = "M" ')

One other notes: You might want to create a variable called &QRYSLT.  That
way, you can concatenate to your heart's content, and then breakpoint the
program prior to the OPNQRYF and review the contents of the &QRYSLT
variable.  If it's okay, then you can execute the OPNQRYF.  This technique
has saved me hours and hours of debugging time.
