I have an SQLRPGLE program that uses embedded SQL to update multiple records
(potentially, anyway) in a master file. I build a string based upon the
user's options and then use EXECUTE IMMEDIATE :sqlstring. The master file
is referenced only in the sqlstring; i.e., it is not defined in the F-specs.
The string is: UPDATE TSTQS36F/"A.IVMAST" SET impidx = 'X ' , imprcd = ' '
WHERE impidx = 'CONW' AND imprcd = ' '
I never noticed before that, when the program ends, the master file is still
open when I run DSPJOB option 14. Is this normal, some keyword I need to
add to the UPDATE string, or something else to be sure the file is closed?
