How long does it take to format the result, and what is going to remind whoever needs to do the manual reformatting that it needs to be done? Is that going to be someone different every time? What are the chances of this infrequently accessed knowledge being lost when the key player eventually walks out the door?

Would this be an "it depends" situation? Take this particular example,
for instance. The data changes once every 4 years or thereabouts why
format the result every time its accessed?

The second part of this would be a response dealing with management's
comfort level of letting just anyone into production data, even if it is
read-only.

Still, the point is well made; for the iSeries to cast off the pallor of
old age we do need to be able to access real & original data on the fly.

Good point.
