Way cool. Now you can:
- Give it a record format name
- Specify what fields to include
- Use derived fields (like UPPER(NAME))
- Use selects like DDS (where ....)

What's left in a view that is not in an index?
- Use of more than one file?

Will they finally add something that I've put DCR's out since V1 of i5/OS
and that is a key on a field from more than one file? Sure would be nice
to do:
CREATE INDEX MYLIB.MYINDEX ON
MYLIB.ORDHEAD JOIN MYLIB.ORDDT
ON ORDHEAD.ORDNBR = ORDDTL.ORDNBR
AND ORDHEAD.ACTREC='A' AND ORDDTL.ACTREC='A'
(ORDHEAD.CUSTNBR ASC, ORDDTL.ITEMNBR ASC)
RCDFMT MYINDEXR ADD ORDHEAD.ORDNBR, ORDHEAD.CUSTNBR, ORDDTL.ITEMNBR...
