Thanks Vern. My latest status. I changed the whole scenario to varchar and varying in my calling and called sqlrpgle. Within the function-program, I use the inputs as where clause in the select. Now I get the sql error of record not found when I call from sqlrpgle. It works very well in interactive sql without any typecast. My java servlet does not work either way. With static fields and with varchar. I have defined the inparm fields as String within Java. Should I be declaring them as something else?

It makes things a little sticky for the user, to have to remember ot cast the literal, however. It might be easier, more usable, to declare the character parms as VARCHAR. SQL takes care of everything for you - if you pass it a CHAR, it'll convert as needed, and you don't need to pass the length, it takes care of that, too. Also, the called function does not need the length for the VARCHAR, as I had expected at first. HTH Vern At 07:29 PM 3/22/2004 -0600, you wrote: >Oh!
