Excellent article! A question re Darryl's request - he said users create the queries - do his users know about putting substitution variables into those queries, as this article presents? It was used with OfficeVision for merging form letters, as I recall.

There are possible stumbling blocks:
- Print options in Query for i do not get brought into QM
- Subtotal stuff might use up more lines than Q4i does, and you can't change that just with STRQMQRY
- Mention has been made of column widths in comments to Simon's article - some of this does carry across, if you set the QMFORM parameter to *QMQRY or use the name of the QRYDFN, but not all. We have a Q4i query I ran with STRQMQRY - it has a column that is 20 or 30 long, but only the first 4 or so are displayed by Q4i - QM displays the entire column - this was a quick test.
- Aggregates might be created as new columns in QM.

QM is fantastic - and mileage will vary. There is the ANZQRY command, which will report many if not most of the potential obstacles.

I've read a few places that this can be done, saving one having to convert
I have tried to find examples on how to do this, but have not had success.
The examples I find show the QRYDFN being run but there are steps missing,
it appears. I need to keep the QRYDFN's as the users create the reports. I
am trying to schedule the queries in the scheduler passing from and to

Does anyone know how to do this?

TIA, Darryl Freinkel
