That looks like my problem but with the weird naming convention that the
system uses to name the object, my only clue to which one to delete is
probably by Last Used Date.  I did print a PRTSQLINF over the package I need
to delete but that just shows the queries that were run & I see no new
indexes are needed.  I will use the DLTSQLPKG (same in V4R5)  tomorrow when
I can get the people out of the app.  I will review all the packages created
on the system & will delete most of them.  Most were created & never used -
Days Used Count = 0 so I'm not sure who was doing what.  I see Crystal
Reports created one & another VB app we have has a couple test ones, so
clean up is in order  I only have 16 on the system so it will not be a
daunting task to clean them up.  I have a DSPOBJD *FULL of all the packages
& I also will do the PRTSQLINF just to look at them before I clean up my

Again, thanks Andy.  This is something I had no clue about & a very good
reason for lurking in the multiple e-mail lists there are out there.

Thanks - Dennis.

Under some circumstances OS/400 SQL support will create a SQL Package
which predefines the specific ODBC request so that it doesn't need to be
built on every execution.  If you're changing one end or the other of
that ODBC request, it may be necessary to locate and delete the object.
Then it can be recreated by the system with the new specifications.
Check for objects on your system of a type *SQLPKG.  There is a
DLTSQLPKG command but I don't know at V4R5.
