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. Rob Berendt -- Group Dekko Services, LLC Dept 01.073 PO Box 2000 Dock 108 6928N 400E Kendallville, IN 46755 http://www.dekko.com michaelr_41@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx 03/19/2004 11:51 AM Please respond to Midrange Systems Technical Discussion <midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx> To "Midrange Systems Technical Discussion" <midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx> cc Subject 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.
