Hi Jack

Take a look at EXECUTE IMMEDIATE - this can run a statement that is in a variable.

You have limits on the statements you can run - no SELECT on its own, although it can be used as the source of data for an INSERT, for example. Things like DELETE, UPDATE, etc., are doable.

This combines PREPARE and EXECUTE in one statement. You have to do those separately if you need parameter markers, then your EXECUTE would have a USING clause to pass in values.

So you could have this:

EXEC SQL EXECUTE IMMEDIATE :SQLString;

I've created sql statements and done declare, prepare, fetch next, dow, etc.

I have a statement in a variable called SQLString and I just want to run
it, not see each record in RPG.

How do I do that with EXEC SQL? My statement is just an insert into a
qtemp file with a join.

Thanks, Art
