When you wrap a field name in a scalar function, it is not the same field, and is not referenced by the field name, i.e.

    PROCESS is not the same as UPPER(PROCESS)

Thank you. Using the field number worked. Strange that you cannot use the
field name.

Use an ALIAS for UPPER(process) like:

Select Distinct upper(Process) AS Process_A, etc
Order by Process_A

I need help building this statement.
IBMi does not like it.

set schema oprutllib;

(Select Distinct upper(Process), Schedule_Year, Schedule_Period,

'Tasks' As File,


from Mth_Tasks

Union All

Select Distinct upper(Process), Schedule_Year, Schedule_Period,

'Log' As File,


from Mth_Logs )

Order by upper(Process), Schedule_Year desc, Schedule_Period desc,


If I do the order by as : Order by Process, Schedule_Year desc,
Schedule_Period desc, Schedule Desc

it complains that PROCESS is undefined or not in the list.

As the field Process allows both upper and lower case, I need to be able
sort using uppercase.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated.
