A 4 is missing in the VarChar definition of Upper: Dcl-s Upper Varchar(128:4);
Because SQLstuff is defined as 4 bytes length

That should resolve the runtime error

Or try this:
Upper = %SubSt(SQLStuff:1:%Size(Upper)); //This will truncate to 128 (not 1024) if needed

Chris, how are you setting the values in the EZDSQLF2 data structure?

I think you have correctly defined SQLStuff over these two subfields
D EZDQLSTL 235 238I 0
D* Length of SQL Stmt text@A1A
D*EZDSQLST00 239 239
D*
D* Varying length
D* /* SQL statement text @B2C

but I suspect that when you try to assign SQLStuff to Upper, the EZDQLSTL value has not been set yet, so it has the value x'40404040' = a huge decimal number, much bigger than the maximum allowed value of 32000 from your definition of SQLStuff.

Okay, I am truly lost here. I am missing something really simple. this is a quick test program that fails when called by the exit with RNQ0115 when it does the upper=sqlstuff

RNQ0115 is Length of varying length variable is out of range.


**FREE

/copy qsysinc/qrpglesrc,ezdaep
Dcl-s pEZDQLSTL pointer inz( %Addr( EZDQLSTL ) );

Dcl-s SQLStuff VarChar(32000: 4) Based( pEZDQLSTL );

Dcl-s Upper Varchar(128);

dcl-pr ODBCEXIT extpgm('ODBCEXITN');
allow char(1);
datain likeds(EZDSQLF2);
end-pr;

dcl-pi ODBCEXIT;
allow char(1);
datain likeds(EZDSQLF2);


allow = *on;
Upper = SQLStuff; // This will truncate to 1024 if needed.

*inlr = *on;

return;
