None of these suggestions let me keep the SQL statements WITHIN the one CL with the RUNSQLSTM command.

Is there a way to do this?

Is it possible to copy data records from within the CL member (as in my OP) into a qtemp source member and use RUNSQLSTM to run that?

Hi Joel,

Maybe you mean like in RUNSQLSTM ?

Kind regards,

Loek Maartens.

There MUST be a better method of coding SQL in a CL source member.

Here is what an SQL stmt might look like that I created today:

DCL &SQLCMD type(*CHAR) len(1000)
chgvar &sqlCmd ('create table qtemp/sqltemp1' +
*tcat ' (fld1 char(1),' +
*tcat ' fld2 char(1),' +
*tcat ' fld3 char(1),' +
*tcat ' clientN numeric(6,0))')


I recall that others like to create a string with the MSG commands.

Is it possible to code the straight SQL statements with no tricks in a CL
source member (like in the old punch-card days to suck in a few data
records?) :)

Any method would be great if I can skip all the *tcats, and quotes mess.

In the example below, is there a simple way to copy everything between the
"/*" to a source member and run that?

Or any other method to keep the CL together with the SQL commands in the
same member - without using quotes or tcat's.

Something like:

DCL &SQLCMD type(*CHAR) len(1000)

//start SQL

create table qtemp/sqltemp1 (fld1 char(1) ---
fld2 char(1) |
fld2 char(1) |---- would
like to run this nice readable SQL command in CL without quotes and tcat's
client numeric(6,0)) ___|
