...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.
