We continue our quest to create an RPG program that "talks" to your PC application.

In a previous tip in this series, I described how to use ADO to call an RPG program from a VB application. Now, I'll detail the fundamental aspects of that RPG program. First, a quick recap: in our scenario, there's a VB application that requires data about a client's debt status. This data resides on a System i within the same network. The data cannot be retrieved via a simple query because a set of business rules is associated with it (the part about the debt limit for the client). The VB application is calling the RPG program via ADO, using a list of parameters (see the table in the previous article).

Who is responsible for the problem? Who is the expert? The other half of the battle is solving the issue as quickly as possible: Who knows the right answer? Who has the authority to handle the issue? Who is available?
