Just like many things, there is no wrong way. I use SQL to get the core data
into my report then read/chain any additional files needed.

There appears to be much SQL talent on this list, and I'm thinking I may

way behind the times. So here's a "how are you guys doing it" question.
A typical example: A request comes in for a new report. It will require
the user to enter some selection data (let's say from and to dates), then
process a bunch of records within RPG. I'm still using open query files,
record select logic in RPG, etc. Are some of you using SQL to do this, is
it a better way, or just different? Would anyone like to share example
code
of a clean lean application using SQL?

Thanks, Tim
