Is this suppose to answer my question? Because I'm not following you. I
understand that host variables are used in prepared statements but why are
they not permitted in this prepared statement?

Exec SQL
Create table qtemp/tmptable as (
select * from myfile
where company = :hostcpy) with data;

I'm wanting this run multiple times in the program, so reuse and
performance is needed.

What I don't get is that this is okay.

Exec SQL
Create table qtemp/tmptable as (
select * from myfile
where company = '001') with data;

Host variables are used in 'Prepared' statements. The reason for that is
the name suggests, they are prepared. ie they are created before they are
run, and when run, the host variables are passed to the already prepared
statement as input values.
This is basically for performance reasons, as the prepared statement can
then be reused multiple times efficiently

Okay, I've found where is says that it's not allowed.

The select-statement must not refer to variables or include

But why, I dont see the explaination why? I'm not seeing why the
would care if I use a hard coded value or a host variable to select
