SQL iQuery

Macro Support

Normally, to run an SQL statement, you specify it on the SQL parameter of the RUNIQRY command as follows:


You can also save the SQL statement in a source member and recall it later, using the following syntax:


A great feature in SQL iQuery allows users to store SQL statements in source member and more easily recall them. We call this our "SQL Macro" feature or simply, Macros.

Using the RUNIQRY command, users may run pre-defined SQL statements using the member name as a "macro" identifier. To do so, the member name is specified on the SQL parameter, prefixed with an asterisk. User-defined macros are stored in QSQLMACRO on the library list, whereas SQL iQuery's built-in macros are stored elsewhere. For example to run the SQL iQuery-provided USRPRF (User Profile Listing) macro, type the following:


This statement runs the SQL statement stored in the source member named USRPRF in the source file named QIQMACRO in the SQL iQuery product library.

There are a number of macros shipped with SQL iQuery (see below) and end-users may create their own. User-created Macros should be stored in source file QSQLMACRO in a library on the library list.

For example, if the source member named SAMPLE is created in source file QSQLMACRO and contains: SELECT * FROM QIWS/QCUSTCDT; then following RUNIQRY command could be used to run that SQL statement as follows:


When RUNIQRY is run, it first checks for the macro name as a member in QSQLMACRO on the library list. If it does not locate a member with that name, it then searches source file QIQMACROS in the SQL iQuery product library for the member.

The SQL iQuery product ships with the following Macros. Some are for testing/debugging the product as well as providing information on your system, but most are for daily use.

Click the Macro name to view the SQL iQuery statement behind the macro.
