Running source member SQL statements with RUNSQLSTM

The RUNSQLSTM command expects a semi-colon (;) at the end of each SQL statement.

I need to create a source member with multiple sentences of SQL: i.e. update aa.... update bb.... update cc.......

...and then run these source member with RUNSQLSTM.

Is it possible? Which is the character to separate between sentences?

Yes, this is possible. The RUNSQLSTM command expects a semi-colon (;) at the end of each SQL statement. With IBM i V6R1, the RUNSQLSTM supports a MARGINS parameter to allow your SQL statements to be longer than 80 characters. In addtion, the V6R1 RUNSQLSTM can execute SQL scripts stored in IFS files.
