Depends on who you ask  :-)

If you can really get your ducks in a row you might even be able to play 
with stuff like CONNECT TO, etc and update the remote files directly and 
bypass the comma delimited.

SQL Vs. RPG Opinions

I have a need to populate many files from an established iSeries
database. I would normally write some RPG/IV code to get the data I need
and write to the files - standard stuff. However, these files are going
to mimic a relational structure on a different system - after I create
the files, I'll convert them to comma delimited format and send them to
the target system where they'll be used as input for tables.

So, I'm really creating tables on my iSeries and sending them to the
other system. Should I use SQL to do this? I've used SQL to create the
tables and I could develop the SQL to populate the tables, but I'm
wondering if it even makes sense to do this.
