I just noticed that:-

it should be :-CREATE VIEW LIB1/V1 AS ( SELECT DIGITS((DEC(FIELD1*1000000)
(FIELD2*10000) + (FIELD3*100) + FIELD4,8,0)) AS MYDATE , A.* FROM

Just missed that pair of parentheses before DEC and after Field4,8,0.

Rest all steps should be fine to understand why there is is difference of
record counts in the view and file?

I cannot help further.

Maybe some else who volunteers on the list can help. And note that
there are now approximately 45 messages in this thread and volunteers
may not have the energy to scan prior messages.

As for typos, I will point out that I actually tried your create view
statement and it had syntax errors. (I know, what you posted it wasn't
the actual statement, but...) Again, this is why I suggest you start
over, keep track of your code, and post it.

I also said "On another front, I don't know how QRY/400 will treat a
view as input, which is why I pointed you to the "Define result fields"
approach for verification. if you are required to verify with QRY/400."

And "field1* 1000000) + ( field2*10000) + (field3*100) + field4)" is
basic mathematics.
cc 19 * 1000000 = 19000000
yy 98 * 10000 = 980000
mm 12 * 100 = 1200
dd 25 = 25
Add them together 19981215

Copying code you don't understand can be deathly dangerous!

Hope you solve your issue.

However i had already shared the structure of file1 in my earlier post
shared SQL queries on file1 and view (V1) created on it , also i had
how i had joined other files to form this file1,,may be it might have
not getting displayed properly due to some format issue while posting in
earlier posts.

Please find all these SQL queries and the file1's structure ( main
file (file1) on which view v1 was created and sql query was formed ) in
the below midrange link.


I was able to execute all these SQL queries without any typo error
help to let me know the reason for the different record counts for main
file1 and in the view created on it for the same dates selection

*Note* - What is the reason to do this calculation like -(field1*
+ ( field2*10000) + (field3*100) + field4) for all these fields , I mean
how is this calculation has been done, could someone please elaborate it
here ( so that it form as CCYYMMDD) ?
