I am writing quite a simple program embedding DB2/400 SQL in ILE
RPG/400 programs and having a really weird problem.

The problem is that after line 0045.00 I get an SQLCODE of -305 and an
SQLSTATE 22002, which means "Indicator variable required" (B-13 of "DB2
for OS/400 SQL Programming V3R7").

If you do a partial join or the table could contain null fields you need to code
an indicator array to indicate null fields.

It  wants an array of 2 byte Binary.  1 element per field selected.  If it 
contains
a -1 it is null.  You can specify the array on the fetch after the fields.  I 
don't
have time right now to send and example but it is in the SQL manual (with
poor examples).

Hope to have helped
