I got the isql sturff working and tested it with the SQL Richard suggested as well as a simple SQL stawement hitting one of our primary files.

Now, when I go to run my Python script I get the following ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pypyodbc.py", line 428, in <module>
ODBC_API = ctypes.cdll.LoadLibrary('libodbc.so')
File "/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/python3.6/ctypes/__init__.py", line 426, in LoadLibrary
return self._dlltype(name)
File "/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/python3.6/ctypes/__init__.py", line 348, in __init__
self._handle = _dlopen(self._name, mode)
OSError: Could not load module /QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/libodbc.so.
The module has an invalid magic number.

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "dayRog_pypyodbc.py", line 7, in <module>
import pypyodbc as db2
File "/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pypyodbc.py", line 440, in <module>
raise OdbcNoLibrary('ODBC Library is not found. Is LD_LIBRARY_PATH set?')
pypyodbc.OdbcNoLibrary: 'ODBC Library is not found. Is LD_LIBRARY_PATH set?'

Mr Googlepants tells me I needed to install the python3-pyodbc package which I did but it did not resolve the issue. The pypyodbc package is installed via PIP as well.

Any ideas on getting over this next hurdle?

Also if you can share the query you're running that might be interesting.

I always test with: select * from qiws.qcustcdt

You'll get more detailed error messages if you enable verbose mode (-v) on
isql: isql -v '*LOCAL'
?

I'm running through some instructions on setting up unixODBC and the ACS
ODBC provider on my IBMi. I've got through it without much of an issue.
At this point I can successfully connect to the system through isql.
When I go to run a simple SQL statement through it, though, I get ...

[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLPrepare

Mr. Googlepants was not much help. Where do I look next for an answer?

Thanks,
Quintin Holmberg
