Nelson,

My solution to the dearth of SQL RPGIV support was to write a set of 
procedures that support SQL dynamically which I call from RPGIV 
programs.  It contains procedures like execsel, fetch, etc.  That way 
only that one module is limited.

The pre-compiler has historically been about a release back.  
Lately, it has been worse.  I haven't tried lately, but long field 
names, like named local variables, %null, embedded /copy, 
variable character, field prefix (causes mch on compile), etc.  
I was told that sending in the comment card at the back of the 
manual is the best way to get results.

If IBM is serious about wanting us to use SQL as a "standard" database
language, they could at least give us an RPG precompiler that works.  I
would be willing to to bet that the C SQL precompiler understands Includes
and local variables.
