Gary,

Which manual? I don't recall a cursor being used (explicitly named, that
is) on either of these SQL statements.

From the manual: "EXECUTE IMMEDIATE combines the basic functions of the
PREPARE
and EXECUTE statements."
so you do have an open cursor - not so sure about the CLOSE statement, but I
have a habit of specifying CLOSQLCSR(*ENDMOD).

I am just a tad confused about this cursor stuff. I have several programs
where I (a) build a string, (b) PREPARE from the string, (c) DECLARE the
cursor, (d) OPEN the cursor, (e) FETCH from the cursor, and (f) CLOSE the
cursor when I'm through. That is, I always explicitly CLOSE the cursor in
these situations.

This program just builds a string and then EXECUTE IMMEDIATE :the_string.
(In fact, other than setting the SQL Options, that's the only line
conditioned by /EXEC SQL.) Since I never DECLAREd a cursor in this program,
I couldn't very well CLOSE it inside the program, could I? If I could, how
(other than the CLOSQLCSR parameter on the CRTSQLRPGI command)? I did not
find any H-spec keywords that would do it.

Even using the *ENDMOD may not close the cursor. SQL has soft and hard
closes. It try's to keep the file open in case it needs to be opened again.
You may close the cursor, do *ENDMOD and still see it. If it is a soft close
and some other process needs the file in a higher level of open, the
database releases it to be closed. If it is a hard close(File still open),
the database won't release it.

Thanks, Rory.  That did the trick.  Never used that before because,
usually, I use cursors frequently and always CLOSE cursor inside the
RPGLE
program.
Didn't know I had a cursor in this one since I never DECLAREd one. I'm
a real put putz when it comes to this SQL stuff.  The default (at
5.1 anyway) is *ENDACTGRP.  If I had called the program via a CL, I
could have used the RCLACTGRP command to the same effect, right?

Have you tried specifying COLSQLCSR(*ENDMOD) on the CRTSQL* command?
The default is CLOSQLCSR(*ENDSQL), I believe, which probably isn't
what you want.

First, V5R1.



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?
