I have the May 2005 issue of iSeries News and do not see the article you speak of. I am interested in reading it. David Smith from: Alan Campin <Alan.Campin@xxxxxxx> Don't know how many people still get Iseries Network but they had an article in the May 2005 issue concerning performance between SQL defined and DDS files. Would recommend anyone who is interested in this subject take a look at the article.
