But I believe you should be able to do:

Exec sql select sum(pinv) into :w1 from CMSFWRK20
where PCLS between :w2 and :w3
and PYEAR = :w4 and PPERD = :w5

Merging this answer with Jim's and what I can remember doing, a "select into" can't be done as an execute so you need to create a cursor and do a fetch into a variable.

From the manual on SELECT INTO.

This statement can only be embedded in an application program. It is an executable statement that cannot be dynamically prepared. It must not be specified in REXX.

I think you might need a space before and in the 3rd line.

My first attempt at using dynamic SQL. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

w2 = 'R1';
w3 = 'R9';
w4 = 2015;
w5 = 4;

WSQL = 'select sum(pinv) into ? from CMSFWRK20 ' +
'where PCLS between ? and ? ' +
'and PYEAR = ? and PPERD = ?';
Exec Sql prepare S1 from :WSQL;

Exec SQL
execute S1 using :w1, :w2, :w3, :w4, :w5;

job log shows
call test
Token ? was not valid. Valid tokens: : <IDENTIFIER>.
Prepared statement S1 not found.
