Alan,

The file will be closed when the job ends. Is the program running some other cleanup code besides closing the file?

Thanks for your reply Paul.
What you are telling me, is that I need not be concerned about the SQL function not specifically closing the files, because the system will close them for me?

Alan,

Will holding a lock (file and maybe record) cause a problem? Is the program buffering any file data that could be held until file close? The file does get closed at job end.

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?
