Has anyone suggested STRQM and STRQMQRY? You can pass parameters in the
STRQMQRY command.

i.e.

CHGVAR &LIB2 ('''' *tcat &LIB *tcat '''')
CHGVAR &FIL2 ('''' *tcat &FIL *tcat '''')
OVRPRTF FILE(QPQXPRTF) PAGESIZE(*N 132)
STRQMQRY QMQRY(MSCHUTTE/FLDDEF) +
SETVAR((FILE &FIL2) (LIBRARY &LIB2))

Just a thought.

And REXX can do SQL embedded.

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.
This is going to sound crazy, but have you thought about using REXX?
When it comes to string-handling, it is tough to beat. And its
integration with CL is unparalleled. REXX is underused and
underappreciated (mainly due to being underexposed, I think). It's
just about perfect for this task.
