Thanks for your reply Rob
Item 1 of 2: Give myself a dope slap - never thought of a stored procedure (the noise you hear in the background is me slapping myself)

Item 2 of 2: Quote " For example, if you call that function from the web, and the job that connects and gets that data is over, aren't the files then closed?" end quote
That's what I was thinking, but then I started questioning myself, and then I wasn't too sure. Always nice to get confirmation.

Item 1 of 2: Instead of calling the function, could they call a stored procedure instead?

Item 2 of 2: Is the sql called from 5250, web, C/S, etc? Basically I am asking just how persistent is the open anyway? For example, if you call that function from the web, and the job that connects and gets that data is over, aren't the files then closed?

But then we have to inform everyone who will use this function going
forward of this procedure.
I am not saying it's not feasible, just that eventually someone is not
going to do that, and then we are back to my original questions.

Hi Chris
Nice idea but how do we send -1 down when using this function within a
view, or sql?

Instead of a second parameter, could a special order number, say -1
trigger the close?

Subject: Creating an SQL UDF on a procedure

Hi everyone
We have a procedure that leaves the files open until the procedure is
called one final time with an extra parameter to close the files For
example, within an RPG program

Ordertype = getOrderType(Ordernumber);
And then at the end of the RPG program

Ordertype = getOrderType(Ordernumber: Closefiles);

We now need to create a function on this procedure. I don't have a problem
creating the function. My concern is that the "final" call - namely
Ordertype = getOrderType(Ordernumber: Closefiles); - will NOT be done (or
is there a way to do it).
My questions to the panel are - is this a cause for concern?
Will this be a problem at some time?
