No issue at all, it is great!
Just curious if there was a better way of doing SQL in CL. It is a nightmare trying to get all the quotes, double quotes, + CL continuations, etc just right.
Nothing to do with the DOCSQL command, it is the CL parser that is so cumbersome.
I was hoping with SQL so commom these days, and the Iseries at 25 years old now, there would be some magically better way to handle SQL within CL so it wasn't so intimidating and time consuming to get variables into a complex CL stmt!
DOCSQL works perfectly!

So Joel, what's the issue with DOCSQL ?
It does create a source member in QTEMP, but I don't see that as a PCI issue since only that job has access to the source and you can delete the temp file immediately after running the SQL if needed.
You can use RUNSQLSTM, but I believe that needs a source member as well.

Just curious - what IS acceptable in your shop? Placing SQL stmts in a source member? Other methods?

Note that in our shop...
Doing dynamic SQL like this means and automatic failure of our Secure
Code Review as required for PCI compliance...
Unless RJS's DOCSQL doing something other than what I assume it does...

I am using the RJS software command DOCSQL.
Does IBM provide an SQL interface for running in directly in CL similar to what is shown below?
(without storing commands in a source file member?)
Any idea why they dont?
Is there a better way to do this in CL?
