Thanks Bruce.

Didn't even think of a join. Works great.

What is the most common way of defining the fields rnrule and ruledesc? I
have "D" specs with hardcoded lengths now.

I'm trying to learn SQLRPG and am struggling with syntax and concepts.



I've been able to do a SELECT of multiple records with a cursor
following examples on the web.



Within the select loop, how can I fetch one row from another file?



This is the beginning of my "loop"



EXEC SQL

Declare C1 Cursor for

Select rnRule from shprules as t

where rnShipper = :svShipper;



how can I use rnRule to fetch a description from table rules?



Thanks in advance.
