As to OPNQRYF, things are better at 7.2 -

With 7.2, some native database access begins to use SQE by default, including:

* Work with Query (WRKQRY) command, when one of the run options is used
* Run Query (RUNQRY) command
* Open Query File (OPNQRYF) command

This does make the question of converting from OPNQRYF to true SQL a murkier one, I think - AND it lets us leave the OPNQRYF usage alone in many cases.

Not sure this helps the OP make a decision - except to update hardware, not code, as others have stated.

One exception may be if your OPNQRYF definitions are not properly aligned
with your database indexes. In that case the SQL SQE could improve
performance a lot.
