What I do when I need to know if my query produced results first before
taking any other action is to run the query directed to an output file in
qtemp, then retrieve the number of current records in that file. If the
value is ZERO, I have no data and skip the rest of my processing.

From AJS, we email many spoolfiles, some generated by wrkqry.
We use InfoPrintServer (PDFMAPE) to auto email the spoolfile by setting
the spoolfile HOLD attribute to *NO.

If the query results in "No records in query report" , we do not want to
auto email the spoolfile.

Any of the below manual changes would stop this.
Is there an easy way to accomplish this automatically?

1) Set HOLD to *yes
2) Move spoolfile to different output.
3) Delete the spoolfile

Thank You
