So many attributes, so little time. It’s tempting to just skip over some of them, isn’t it?
By Carol Woodbury
If any of you have prompted the Create or Change User Profile commands, you’ll know that there are a full five pages worth of attributes that can be specified for a user profile. Do you have to specify all of them? Are some parameters more important than others? Read on to find out.
Now let’s move on to slightly more realistic (and useful) embedded SQL scenarios and write our first embedded SQL function.

In case you’re wondering, I haven’t forgotten that this series is about SQL, not RPG. However, you’ll see a bit of RPG in this and the next TechTips. My intention is to help you think outside the box and consider using SQL where you normally wouldn’t. In order to do that, this article and the next few articles will provide some examples, using RPG, so that you can get inspired and look at problems the “SQL way.”

Ted Holt shows you how to code an IBM i program that performs start-up tasks when a user signs on to the system
By Ted Holt
Editor’s note: This article is excerpted from chapter 15 of Complete CL: Sixth Edition, by Ted Holt.
So-called sign-on programs (more accurately called initial programs) are special programs that run when a user signs on to the system. The sign-on program is indicated in the user profile’s initial program (INLPGM) attribute. With INLPGM (*NONE) in a user’s profile, the system doesn’t run any program at sign-on and shows the initial menu immediately. If the user has a value other than *NONE in the INLPGM attribute, the system runs the indicated program before it presents the initial menu. With INLMNU(*SIGNOFF) in a user’s profile, the user is signed off, when the user’s sign-on program ends.
