Don,
Net.data can't access an SQL server database but it can call a program that does.

Scott Klement wrote JDBCR4 *SRVPGM to provide this capability.

I've had a play with it and it works appears to work fine provided that you have the necessary credentials and permissions on the SQL Server database.
It essentially allows you to code SQL statements from RPG that deploy to an SQL server database, analogous to deploying to a DB2/400 database via /exec sql.
It requires a specific java class for the necessary SQL driver which you need to download as a pre-requisite into your java ext directory ( can't find the url I used for that at present)

Here is a paste from one of Scott's articles -

You can download JDBCR4, my updated service program that has null support, from the following link:

Is there a simple setup and way to grab SQL Server data (from a Windows
PC) via a Net.Data Macro?
