The following article helped me to solve that problem for my STRPREPRC command:

"Create Your Own Compile Commands in WDSC"

I basically added parameters SRCFILE(...) and OPTION(*EVENTF) and I updated the first 20 bytes (LIBRARY, OBJECT) of the *LDA with the name of the object that was created by STRPREPRC command. I assume that you need to update the local data area with the name of the library of the source file and the source member name.

Feel free to check module STRPREPRC4 for details. The STRPREPRC command is included in the iSphere library or you can download it from my Freeware page at

Betreff: [WDSCI-L] Custom compile from IFS


I wrote a program to help me "compile" SQL scripts in RDi. It is just a wrapper around the RUNSQLSTM command, and it parses the output from the RUNSQLSTM command to produce an EVENTF file for RDi to display in the error list view. It works perfectly for SQL scripts stored in source members.

I've been trying to get it to work from the IFS as well. RUNSQLSTM works happily using a stream file, producing near identical output. However, RDi is not displaying the error log window at all even though I am 100% certain that the EVENTF member is correct and in the right place (noted by positions 1-20 of the *LDA).

Does anyone have any idea why RDi is able to show the error log for source members but not IFS stream source files? I do have an OPTION(*EVENTF) in the command for both source members and stream files, and in both cases the right EVENTF member exists after the "compile".
