...that's the JSON_ARRAYAGG(...) function, normally that's what you want if you are going to send or store this data as a JSON object. In others words, you want to aggregate a series of DB rows into an array, which is part of a single JSON object, otherwise there's not much point in having an array. Normally you'd do a GROUP BY and/or WHERE clause to include only the items in the array you need per object.

If you really want one row per DB row then just change the JSON_ARRAYAGG to JSON_ARRAY, but then you'll just get a bunch of JSON objects with on array element in, which is probably not what you need.

Subject: Re: JSON Questions

Thank you. This worked. Why does it create one long string instead of a
row for each name?

select json_object(
'ExternalId': Nameid,
'Prefix': trim(PRFXDESC),
'FirstName': trim(firstname),
'MiddleName': trim(middlenme),
'LastName': trim(lastname),
'Suffix': trim(SUFFIXDES),
'BirthDate': trim(BIRTHDATE)
from lcadtalib.namintprp fetch first 100 rows only

single quotes, not double as in my example. Apologies.
