I think we agree that SQL is a shoehorn. I also think that
opnqryf is a shoehorn. So far, I think I am the only one to
propose a strait RPG method so since you ask, I think
it is likely to be as good or better than any solution involving

I agree that this is not a good place to use SQL, but for
the same reason, OPNQRYF and a four line RPG program
are just as bad....snip...I would consider moving the rank to
another file and updating it froma short (but not four line)
trigger written in RPG.
 Why is shoehorning the functionality into SQL a better method?  What's
wrong w/ the straight RPG method?  Is your problem w/ OPNQRYF?  If yes,
why do you feel that it's so evil?
