I have thoughts about that too.
On that way from RDi to SQL script editor
Strip DECLARE .. prefix and put in comment
Let the developer play with just the SELECT statement
On the way back, prepend from the DECLARE comment
BTW, would you see what I proposed as a sufficient solution to RFE
Regarding the RFE on visual explain.
When I was discussing this with Mark Anderson he didn't think that
developers had the authority or interest or expertise to use visual explain
to optimize queries beyond noticing the need to index certain tables. But
I see 46 votes on this RFE. Are developers making active use of Visual

integrating Data Studio with RDi. Imagine you have an existing SQLRPGLE
program with a DECLARE CURSOR as below. You'd like to make some changes
to that SQL statement, what does one do?
Rectangle select, copy, tab to Data Studio, paste. Replace the host
variables with literals, test. Edit, test, repeat. When happy with the
new SQL statement, copy in Data Studio, tab to RDi, select, paste.
Adjust formatting. Save, compile, test. Forgot to replace literals,
wonder why program doesn't work. Replace literals with host variables.
Save, compile, test.
It's better than a sharp stick in the eye, but that's a low bar :-)

There is a small subset of IBM Data Studio which is shipped with RDi.
Now that IBM Data Studio itself is free, you can get the full features
of the product. The SQL running/editing/diagramming is relevant to

andI am thinking about developing better integration with RDi eventually,Mad utopian dreamer alert!
so I am following this thread with interest.
So if there was an easy way to get embedded SQL into an SQL script
editor in IBM Data Studio would this help write, test queries?
select SYSTEM_COLUMN_NAME, DATA_TYPE, "LENGTH", NUMERIC_SCALE,
COLUMN_TEXT, IS_NULLABLE, "CCSID", SYSTEM_TABLE_NAME,
where SYSTEM_TABLE_NAME = :REF_FILE and
SYSTEM_TABLE_SCHEMA = :REF_LIBR;
I would love to have the test/debug tool/IDE be able to 'declare'
variables :REF_FILE and :REF_LIBR as well as populate them with values
then execute this code as-is. Once my SQL is working properly, I couldthen
cut / paste it back into my HLL as-is without having to remove literalsand
replace them with host variables.option
Similar to the ability SDA has to populate fields for testing (STRSDA
