IBM i's Open Query File is dated but does provide effective results with ASNA Visual RPG in many use cases. This article shows you how to use it with AVR.
*All* IBM i shops have legacy RPG applications. These applications are typically built out of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of RPG programs. It's not uncommon for many of those RPG programs to be reusable program objects that are called by many other RPG programs in the application. This article shows how to use ASNA Visual RPG's Call/Parm to call IBM i program objects.
