So?

I have a similar block in my modules also...but that doesn't help if
sometimes you need commit = *NONE and sometimes you need commit = *CHG.

Try having two of those blocks with an IF statement

if flag = *ON;
exec SQL SET OPTION ... ;
else;
exec SQL SET OPTION ... ;
endif;

Your code will not compile...

Now try this...
if *on = *off;
exec SQL SET OPTION ... ;
endif;

Guess what? The options set will be effective as the SET OPTION is a
compile time statement, not a run-time one.

In my no-main, or linear-main modules, I usually stick SET OPTION in its
own procedure with a nice little comment header
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------
// SetSqlOptions
//
// The SQL SET OPTION statement is a compile time statement
// It must be physically the first SQL statement the compiler sees
// during compilation. the options are in effect for the entire module
//
// Thus this dummy procedure that isn't ever called.
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Note such a proc must physically before any other SQL in the module. But
no-where in the module is that procedure actually called.
