Q

Selecting a record containing a single quote

I would like to select a record containing a single quote via the OPNQRYF command in a CL program. How can I specify...

in a QRYSLT parameter? You can do this either by looking for the HEX value of the quote character:

OPNQRYF FILE((TNAMES)) QRYSLT('ZZFILE *CT X"C1"') …

or by surrounding the quote character with other quotes that signal to the QRYSLT parameter that you want to look for a single quote:

OPNQRYF FILE((TNAMES)) QRYSLT('ZZtext *CT " ' ' " ')

NOTE: I have spread out the quotes with spaces to show them more clearly; don't include the spaces in your code!
