    Although Access 2007 must rate among the most hateful pieces of software ever written, now that the Runtime is available free, it gives the opportunity to run an Access database in the Integrated File System. Does anyone know whether it could be started as part of the startup program at release 4.4 please? Many thanks Peter Kinsman

    Hi, I'm looking for information on how to access database record files, and modify them using either SQl or raw access on the AS/400, however, I've found myself rather baffled by the lack of documentation, and google doesn't seem to help (me) much... anyone has info on this? Thanks in advance!
  • 3. 2 Nic's in one as400
    Hi all, Need your help again. I have been reading articles about this but did not find any solutions. What's the problem: We have a number of customers that use our system. They all use the same Internet connection. Now we want to get us a second ADSL line that can be used as backup. The customer must have a selection of 2 IP-addresses to which the box listens. Can anyone of you tell us how to go from that. We use a 2432/1519 270 V5R4. I like to know if we can put another I NIC in the system and how the box is configured. Thx Ace

SQL delete

Postby arrowcomputer » Tue, 13 Jul 2004 21:04:08 GMT

I am trying to delete records in one file based on criteria in a
second file.  I have the select running, and it select the proper
records.  I'm trying to figure the syntax of the delete.

The select :
select *  from SLALLO, MBADREP where ADAKDT > 1040731 and ADUUQ1
ADDCCD=ORTP and ADCVNB=ORDNO and ADFCNB=ITMSQ and ADHFCD < '50'     
order by ADCVNB   

The ADxxxx fields are from file MBADREP, the others from file SLALLO. 
I want to delete the SLALLO records that meet the where criteria.

My first attempt was (but failed syntax) - I tried several versions,
but I'm missing something here.

delete from                                                   
SLALLO, MBADREP  where ADAKDT > 1040731 and ADUUQ1                 
ADDCCD=ORTP and ADCVNB=ORDNO and ADFCNB=ITMSQ and ADHFCD < '50'

Terence,

SQL can't handle what you want to do.  You can't do a join during a 
delete.  You will need to make use of a subselect with an "in" or 
"exists" predicate.  For example, say I want to delete all order detail 
lines for orders more than a year old.  Problem is the order date only 
appears in the order header file.  So I'd need to to the following 
subselect:

delete from orderdtl
where ordernbr in (select ordernbr from orderhdr
                   where orderdate <= current_date + year(1)
                  )


exists is a little less straight forward.  At least for me as I don't 
use it often.  I think the following is correct:

delete from orderdtl A
where exists (select * from orderhdr B
              where orderdate <= current_date + year(1)
                and A.ordernum = B.ordernum
                and A.key2 = B.key2
             )


HTH,
Charles

Terence I think it is possible.
Please make a good back-up (as always :)  of both files and try this:

Delete from SLALLO
where exists
(select  * from MBADREP
where   SLALLO .CONO = MBADREP .ADAENB
and  SLALLO.ORTP = MBADREP.ADDCCD
and SLALLO.ORDNO = MBADREP.ADCVNB
and SLALLO.ITMSQ = MBADREP.ADFCNB
and SLALLO.ITMSQ = MBADREP.ADFCNB
and  MBADREP.ADUUQ1 > 0
and MBADREP.ADZ93N < ADUUQ1
and MBADREP.ADA3CD  like '4%'
and MBADREP.ADHFCD < '50' )



Good luck
Loes

Thanks.   The "where exists" is the part I was missing.

1.Stupid SQL delete from logical file question

In DB2/400, if I run this statement:  delete from ordvcrec a where
not
exists(select * from i$paint b where a.part#=b.i$part)

Where ORDVCREC is a join logical of physical files ORDVALID and
ORDMASCREC, will the rows being deleted be the "logical" rows from
ORDVCREC only, or could physical rows (records) be wiped out in
ORDVALID or ORDMASCREC?


I am assuming that only logical rows will be deleted from ORDVCREC,
but I am afraid to try it...


Thanks for any and all opinions and answers...

2.SQL (Insert/Delete) Testing ?

Since SQL is very powerful is there an easy way to simulate whatif(s)
if such SQL commands are ran against a PF.  My current work around to
this is copying files and then evaluating my results, I did not know
if there is an easiear way to do this.  I have used the apyjrnchg
command and rmvjrnchg command to move records back etc but did not
know if there is a quick and easy way to do this, thanks.

5.SQL on Fire - Mass Deleting Data.

Linux Db2 LUW V8 FP 15

I was readiong Serge SQL on Fire presentation (part 2), and there is
a slide that shows how to mass delete data using procedures. Something
like:

loop: LOOP
DELETE FROM  (SELECT 1 FROM Table WHERE InvDate <= dt   FETCH FIRST
1000 ROWS ONLY) AS D;
IF SQLCODE = 100 THEN LEAVE loop;
END IF;
COMMIT;
END LOOP loop;

I have studied the access plan of the statement above, and compared it
to the plan of the statements my application runs (a simple 'delete
from table where ID=? and timestamp between ? and ?').

The plans are exactly the same, with the same Total Cost.

Question: Should I expect delete performance improvement if I use
procedures with Fetch First X rows, like Serge example ?  How does
this compare to single DELETE statements, in terms of performance ?

Thanks in advance.

-Michel.
