Perhaps this works - (have not tried it though):

exec sql
select rrn(a)
into :newRowRrn
from final table (
insert into mytable
values('....')
) a ;

I find that interesting Gad, thanks.

If -anyone- on the list knows, I for one would appreciate 2 things -
1. -IF- it is possible . . .
2. An example (syntax) of getting the just-inserted record RRN or Row
Number.

Here's the syntax to get the just added Id Column for a record,
immediately after insert or write, from an rpg program -

exec sql set :gOBFTKey = Identity_Val_Local() ;

Just to get the sharing juices flowing on Monday morning.
(heh heh I had to search source to find MY example. . . which I got from
someone else :--)

Thanks,
John

I believe it is possible to get the RRN (or is it Row Number) of the
just-inserted
record using get diagnostics immediately following the 1st insert.

You can then delete that record, if needed, using the RRN
