This works for me
Clear Needtocalcstatetax;
Exec SQL Select 1 Into :Needtocalcstatetax
From Statetax
where Stcmpy = :ParmCompany and
Ststate = :ParmState
fetch first row only;

Subject: sqlrpgle question

Hi,

I want to set the value of an indicator to *on if I find at least one record matching my search criteria and *off otherwise.

What's the best way?

eg :

indicator = *off;

exec sql
Select '1' into : indicator
from mytable

where ....err.. what goes here? what if there are many rows returned?

Thanks!
