Allow Null and %NullInd are for file I/O, not SQL.

In SQL you create array of small int, one for each field in the data
structure. If null, array element is set to non-zero. All described in the
manuals.

I'm doing an SQL full outer join of 2 files looking for exceptions both
ways. The select is into data structures.

Obviously there will be instances where one or the other of the files has
nothing so the DS fields will be null. I've got a ALWNULL(*USRCTL)
statement. I've got an If %Nullind (iITNBR) in the code.

The compiler barfs trying to put ALWNULL on the DS definition. How do I
specify ALWNULL on a DS? My googling skills are lacking today.

Thanks.
