There is a debit field and a credit field in the record layout.

The requirement is to print a third column which is a running
total. In RPG it would be

runtotal = runtotal + debit - credit

I want to do this with query but can't figure it out.

Any suggestions?

The Query/400 feature offers only its /summary functions/ accumulators. There are no other accumulators [e.g. running totals] supported in WRKQRY; i.e. the value of prior row(s) is not tracked, except for effecting the summaries for the /report breaks/. The Query/38 feature [DSNQRYAPP] however, does offer running totals; effectively the same question & response here:
