Data Stage LOG detail question

Data Stage LOG detail question

Data Stage LOG detail question

On my Transaction Download from the As/400 ODBC connection, I am getting 200 or so extra records than I am expecting – using job parameters as variables in my SQL where clause on the ODBC step.

If I HARDCODE the values into the WHERE clause, I get the correct number of transaction records. So I’m thinking it has to do with quotes or lack of for the character strings - -But I can’t see what is being rendered.

Is there a way to view the ACTUAL SQL that is being generated at Run Time ??

For instance –
In Data Manager, I can code WITH THE VARIABLES:

Select … … …

But the RUN TIME Log actually shows me the reconciliation of the values of the variables:

… … …
FROM "PD900DTA"."F57011BZ5M"
AND FBCO='00101'

Thinking outside the box, can your DBA team capture the SQL that runs? Also, I seem to remember that there was a way to view the actual SQL in earlier versions of Data Stage. Let me look around. We have both v8 and v9 here - what version are you running?

HEY !!
Just found it --
Add Environmental Variable $OSH_ECHO and set it to TRUE.
Then in your view of the Job log, look for a Statement similar to
main_program: Echo: (...)
Then DOUBLE CLICK on it for more details --
It shows you the SQL statement with the variables replaced by the actual values !

I knew that had to be a way to do this !
