You can use CREATE ALIAS to point to the member you want and then execute
your SQL in the source member on the ALIAS instead of the table. After
you have done your RUNSQLSTM just DROP ALIAS & then CREATE ALIAS over the
next member, rinse & repeat...

Birgitta and Rob,

I haven't used either fat or thin client of iNav do SQL'ish things
before. Is there a way to set overrides for file members using that
interface? RUNSQLSTM could be run after the file overrides are set but
again it would be at least a two stepper: Create the file and then copy
it to the IFS.

I'll take a look at iNav and see about the file member stuff as well.

If it's only a one shot, you may use IBM i Navigator - Database - Run an

Betreff: SQL output to csv

I need to extract data from a few tables and create a csv file. I
out the SQL to select the data but the only way I can think of getting
output is to create a table and then use an insert statement to write
data into the table and then use cpytoimpf to create the csv. Making
more interesting is that the source files are multi-membered.

Any shortcuts here? I can override the files used as input and wrap the
whole thing in a CL command but if someone knows of a better way, I am
ears. Running IBM i 7.1 if it makes a difference.
