    newp,

    Check out the CRTPF command. Until you learn to use an editor it's gonna be kinda rough...

      or better yet, forget DDS and use SQL CREATE TABLE.

              @Tom
              It may be unrelated to the question of newp, but considering am new to using SQL RPGLE, I would like to know where exactly does the table get created when we use CREATE TABLE command in the program? Does the table last till the job/program ends or till we issue a DROP TABLE command?

                You can specify the library to create the table:

                CREATE TABLE PGF.BILLOFMATERIAL

                This creates table BillOfMaterial in library PGF.

                The table remains until you drop it. If you want it to automatically be deleted at the end of the job, then you can create it in library QTEMP.

                    from programming there's absolutely no difference at all (unless your program is using SQL to access the table data, then SQL tables will perform better). the main thing is that DDS is no longer being enhanced while IBM is committed to continue to improve/enhance SQL. it's far better to use what is currently being enhanced vs. using a stagnant method JMO.

                        my suggestion is to a) get a good book/tutorial on the system or b) take a class or c) find a seminar or a local user group to help you learn. most of us here don't have the time to write a tutorial on the entire system, database, etc. especially when all of those are on the web. go to IBM's infocenter, tons of info there as well. google is your friend

                          ok thanks alot .
                          because of that people always like open sources .
                          i get also why only few ppl as400's experts. But how people will learn if their is no one have the ability to facilitate learning..

                          who said if you want to learn you have to pay thousands ,I think as400 forum is the best place to ask ..
