Hi Pete,

I like Giuseppe Costagliola's utilities: SQL2CSV, SQL2XML (http://www.mcpressonline.com/sql/techtip-sql2csv-and-sql2xml.html) and SQL2JXL (http://www.mcpressonline.com/microsoft/techtip-excel-flies-higher-with-jexcelapi.html)

They're free and simple to use, e.g.

SQL2CSV SQLSTMT('select * from myFile') TOCSV('/home/test/output.csv')

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
all ears. Running IBM i 7.1 if it makes a difference.
