You could just have them use Operations Navigator or a tool like DB
Visualizer with an exit set up for SQL to log all statements. You can
buy exit programs or write your own. Be aware that with the security

We are attempting to wrestle with a final Sarbanes Oxley issue relating
to SQL, specifically using STRSQL via the command line.  While STRSQL is
restricted to those who have a business need to use it, our problem
relates to the potential for data manipulation and changes that are not
logged.  Our development staff can use it (but not update production
data) but our security officers can of course use it, AND update
production data.  It is NOT practical for us to journal all of our
production data libraries.  While I do have STRSQL command usage logged
via the OS/400 audit journal, (we know who uses it and when) it does not
provide the log of activity within the STRSQL session.
Are there any tools on the market that can log the activity within the
STRSQL session?   Any feedback you can provide would be GREATLY
