As a matter of habit I always use the &QRYSLT method, and also write the
next line after every modification as a "SNDPGMMSG &QRYSLT" .  Even when its
finally right I usually comment the SNDPGMMSG lines instead of deleting them
  Nothing against the debugger, but this is just a habit since I never get
OPNQRYF right the first few times anyway.

Subject: RE: OPNQRYF problem
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

> 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 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.
