You can't do that directly... SCNMSGF is an interactive green screen
application. Your request that I replied to was in an answer to if there
were APIs like WRKMSGD. So yes, there are APIs, and SCNMSGF uses them,
but you're not going to call the APIs from SQL either.

How do you call SCNMSGF from SQL linking one table with a list of message
id's to the list of messages within a message file?

SCNMSGF does. It lists messages and allow search by ID or message text.

Funny thing is there are these APIs:
Retrieve Message (QMHRTVM)
Retrieve Message File Attributes (QMHRMFAT)

But neither one lists out the messages within the message file like
WRKMSGD does. Is there such an API?

I do not see an IBM supplied one listed at:

Perhaps you could write your own UDTF that would perform such a
function.
Here's a sample of a homegrown function calling an API

Someone asked me for a list of possible messages a program might send. I
compiled a list of about 250 message ID's that refer to a vendors
message
file. Is there an easy way to query the message description in a
message
file? I'd like to join this list of ID's to the message file to convert
the ID's into descriptions. I've searched and haven't located anything
like a SQL view or service that might help.
