Perhaps worth clarifying, for those less acquainted, that the above expressed "REXX can do SQL embedded" does not equate with [and should not be confused with a potential and incorrect inference that] the "REXX can do embedded SQL":

REXX can perform much of SQL via the *EXECSQL environment and perform the CL via the *COMMAND environment. Both language environments are provided within the REXX language, whereby the statements\commands of those other two languages [as supported by their language environments] can be _interspersed_ with the REXX language statements. REXX can not however, do "embedded SQL", because REXX is an interpreted language; i.e. not compiled and thus there is no SQL pre-compiler for the REXX language.
